MAPPIN & WEBB “THE TIMES” is a rare model with a Sterling silver hallmarked case for Chester 1901. This is a fine and well running fully ruby jewelled movement which is signed Mappin & Webb as well as “The Times”. The watch has a perfect white dial with black Roman numbers and black spade pointers, signed Mappin & Webb London, and a seconds dial at number six position.
