Presenting a fine English sterling silver timepiece by J. W. Benson, this full hunter watch boasts impeccable functionality and fine condition.
The movement, a 15-jewel 3/4 plate marvel, resides in a sparkling mint condition, featuring a lever escapement and bearing the distinguished signature of J. W. Benson. Hallmarks within the three covers reveal its origin in London, dating back to 1930.
J. W. Benson, established in 1847 by James William Benson and Samuel S. Benson, earned renown as one of Victorian London's premier retail jewellers. Beyond their prestigious retail endeavours, the company crafted its own movements, attracting a distinguished clientele that included British and European royalty, such as Queen Victoria and the Prince of Wales.
Encased in sterling silver with a smooth, plain finish, this timepiece exhibits a remarkable state of preservation. While two minuscule dings grace the back, their subtle presence does little to diminish the overall splendour of a watch nearly a century old. The pristine white dial, bearing the signature of J. W. Benson, further enhances its allure along with black Roman numbers and black spade pointers. With a diameter of 50 mm, this stem-set, stem-wound watch is both elegant and functional.
Emanating from an era rich in horological craftsmanship, this collector's gem promises not only a stylish addition but also a delightful wearable experience—a testament to the enduring legacy of J. W. Benson.
