VINTAGE 1932 GENTLEMEN’s 9KT GOLD ART DECO STYLE WATCH WITH HOODED LUGS CHESTER HALLMARKS BOX & PAPERS

Vintage 1932 gentlemen’s 9kt gold art-deco style watch with hooded lugs, Chester hallmarks, box & papers,

This very stylish gentlemen’s wristwatch was manufactured in 1932 and is quintessentially art-deco. Retailed by the Plymouth jeweller b.h. worden & co.

The wonderfully elaborate 9kt gold case has all of the features that you want in a 30’s piece. Stepped sides with hooded strap lugs and fixed gold strap bars just ooze quality. There is even a tiny lug on the case back to help with opening, which we have never seen before.

Measuring 25.5mm across the bezel, not including the crown and 36mm tip-to-tip.

The silvered dial includes the very desirable applied gold breguet figures and subsidiary seconds, signed by the retailer ‘Worden & CO. – Plymouth with swiss-made below 6.

The very, very good quality movement is in great condition and running well. Designed to be fitted with a wide 20mm strap which is very unusual for the period, this watch may have been aimed at the sports-man or similar customer.

Complete with the original presentation box and advertising paper from Worden’s jewellers. The watch is in fine original condition throughout and has been fitted with a new, quality alligator-grain strap.
