Heavy Seth Thomas Coin Silver Full Hunter 18s Model 2, 7j
Here we have a Seth Thomas 7 jewel Model 2 in a very heavy Coin Silver full hunter case.
The movement is an early (1887) model 2, grade 34 with 7 jewels. This movement has been fully serviced and a new mainspring fitted so it is running really well and keeping good time to within a couple of minutes per day. The watch is pendant wound and lever set.
The coin silver case is exceptionally heavy and in very good condition. All of the hinges are good, the covers opening to 90deg. There is wear to the engraved floral design but no more than may be expected and the design is still quite clear. The crown and bow in excellent condition.
The crystal is clear and unmarked.
The double sunk dial in excellent condition, all of the printing crisp and clear, and complimented by nicely blued spade hands.
Overall, a very nice example of this fine antique pocket watch.
