As mentioned It was serviced In October. Its silver hallmarked "B" for 1917 and the crack free dial is complemented by the lovely "cathedral".Clock style hands and the dial is surrounded with a chapter ring or "railway tracks" as they are known around its outer edge , it has exquisite age patina. A very practical watch due to the costly work carried out (unlike most Trench watches that have never been serviced in 100 years).
The enamel dial is crack free & as the glass is A1. One of the articulated lug rings has been changed at some point , but not.
(articulated) lugs that give it another dimension and comes on a modern "cuff" style black leather watch strap that suits it to a T. Ost of this age are basket cases with cracked dials and dirty movements running poorly , not this one , this one is absolutely superb after all the work undertaken and is keeping great time. A real find for both the. WW1 , & Art Deco fan/collector alike , & would make a lovely Christmas present or perhaps a birthday gift?From 1917 the year of Vimy Ridge , Arras , Passchendaele or Ypres. Champagne , Cambrai , Malmaison & the Aisne. It will come with a gift box in time for Christmas.
