A mint condition solid 9k gold Swiss mens Hermes wrist watch in very good original condition dating to 1920 in a substantial case with a fine satin silver dial. This is guaranteed to be a genuine Swiss Hermes men's wrist watch, and the watch is fully marked on the case as such and in excellent condition.
THE DIAL: 100% mint, the satin silver dial with black Arabic numerals and signed "Hermes, Swiss made" in bright condition. Dial with original blue steel moon hands in fine order. Diameter is 23 mm. The new crystal is also in excellent condition.
THE MOVEMENT: 100% mint, with highly polished nickel steel plates. The watch with an unusual compensated regulator and two arm bimetallic balance, with an overcoiled hairspring. The movement with 15 ruby jewels all of which are of a good size, much larger than normal, a sign of very good quality and early shock proofing to the balance staff. The watch with a fine domed gilt winding button. The movement is very clean and has been well looked after and just recently overhauled and oiled by my watch-maker. The watch is in very good working order for its age, winding smoothly and running strongly. Hermes like many of the finer names in Horlogy, had movements supplied to them by a number of companies, and they are characterised by superb attention to finish, as this example clearly demonstrates. The watch with a nice original domed gilt metal winding crown.
THE CASE: 100%, the solid 9k gold case measures 26 mm outside diameter, and 31 mm to ends of lugs. The front cover is excellent and the rear cover closing tightly and all hinges in perfect order. The case stamped, 9k gold, and 0.375 karat stamps, London hall-marks, and the case number of 967,xxx. Please note that we do not re-polish cases to give a new look, as this often results in surfaces and edges being abraded as is so often happens. The watch comes with a new leather watch band and a leatherette presentation box to store the watch when not in use.
