    1922 Elgin 12S Mens Gold Filled Hunter Cased Pocket Watch With Chain RUNS
    This is a very nice used watch from a local estate. It is a 12 size Elgin, hunter model, stem wind and set, 7 jewels, serial number 24738642 (dates to 1922). The watch runs strong, but has not been cleaned or serviced. SO I cannot guarantee it to be a completely reliable timekeeper. The porcelain dial is excellent, and has blued steel hands. The gold filled case has ornate designs on both lids. The case has good hinges and case springs, and is not dented or damaged. It has 2 ornate initials on one lid. The case is high quality, marked ILLINOIS WATCH CASE CO. The chain is also gold filled, and it is in excellent condition. A nice watch for the collector, or to carry.

    Antique and very rare solid gold pocket watch chain. Original case. 19th Century
    Antique and very rare 18K-gold pocket watch chain. Striking and very rare 18K-gold pocket watch chain in its original case. The chain was manufactured in the 19th century and remains in excellent condition. These pieces are quite rare, furthermore when they come in their original antique cases. The one that we can see in the images bears no hallmarks so it has been impossible to tell its origin. Nevertheless, it has already been acid-tested and we can guarantee that it is entirely made of 18K gold. This item shows a really beautiful design with an elegant, simple and contemporary look. It is composed of circular and oval links woven with a thick gold cord. The chain is almost 15.75 in / 40 cm in length, so it is a really long piece. At one end it has a cameo-case composed of two pieces connected in a book-like way. Both have oval frames and glass panes to put photographs inside. The chains storing case is rectangular in shape with a dark-red leather covering outside and maroon inner velvet lining. This striking and very rare 18K-gold pocket watch chain in its original case is a jewel more than one hundred years old, in fine condition and of an exceptional quality. Dimensions: Length: 40 cm. I think I left nothing in the description but if I forgot something, I’ll be glad to answer any questions. We are professional antique dealers. Enjoy my articles and I hope we keep in touch. Thanks for trusting me and enjoy! Best wishes from Spain. Simply shop away and then request the total from us. IMPORTANT – SEE ALL THE PICTURES. This is an antique or vintage item , not a new item, and it’s not perfect as a new one. It may have minor scratches or hits not mentioned in this description but than can be seen in the many photos published with it. Scroll down the description to see all the photos. Photos are part of the description, because a picture is worth a thousand words. Please, study the pictures as part of the description and if you have any doubt ask me. Also be aware that when I say that an antique item is in perfect working conditions, doesn’t mean that it works as new. A machine with 100 years is not prepared to be working everyday during hours, except my antique clocks. Many things can happen inside an antique mechanism and today’s perfectly working spring, could be the future’s failure as far away as in 10 years or as near as the next month. It’s impossible to know exactly when. If necessary, we restore and/or repair and finally clean and/or adjust, all our antique machines, and if it’s there’s a defect or malfunctions, it’s clearly indicated in the description, video or pictures, but these machines are still antiques. For example, an antique car, a Ford T from 1910, may be in perfect working conditions, but this doesn’t mean that it works as new or that you can use this antique car as an everyday car to go to your job. I want to leave this clear as part of the description. Antiques, even in perfect working conditions, can’t be guaranteed as a new or second hand item. Not only the antique itself has 100 years old or more, but also each spring, screw, wheel and gear of its mechanism has also 100 years or more. Of course, if something happens we can help to solve the problem, even repairing it, we know experts in many areas, but understand that even a perfectly working antique is still an antique. Our work is not complete until you receive your item safely in your home. We certify that our products are 100% originals. We certify that the description and dating of the article that we give is 100% accurate. This article will be perfectly packed so that it arrives in excellent condition. We pay full attention that you receive your article perfectly. We treat the article as if it were going to be sent to ourselves. WE GUARANTEE YOUR ACQUISITION. Many collectors have became millionairs. If you are starting a collection, follow these important tips. If you want to invest in antiques, always choose original pieces and avoid reproductions. A reproduction loses half of its value in the same minute that you are purchasing it, while an original antique gains value each passing day. This is an original antique and its value will continue growing tomorrow. Read and learn about for area of interest: swords, clocks, phonographs, antique photos, old silver, technical antiques, typewriters… Invest in books as much as in your collection and learn as much as you can. If you keep your collecction catalogued, you will increase its value. Keep yourself informed about the market prices in your area of interest. Collect antiques, not junk. It is always better a small collection with excellent pieces than a huge collection of junk, rusty irons and broken machines. There is not a goal to reach, so take the pleasure in in the process of your treasure hunting. A collection should be something to enjoy, and there is many interesting pieces out there and very few time to enjoy them, so be selective with your choices. If you follow these simple steps you will be in the correct direction to develop an excellent collection, whatever is your area of interest and, for me the most important of all, enjoying the process. WHO WE ARE & ABOUT ME. Saragossa is a Spanish medium size city of 700.000 people, located just in the middle of the way between Madrid and Barcelona, 300 kms from each one, and also equidistant 300 kms. To other cities as Bilbao and Valencia. Its an antique city founded by the Romans, by the Emperor Caesar Augustus more than 2000 years ago, capital of the powerful antique Kingdom of Aragon, 900 years ago and during the Medieval times, and first defeat of Napoleons troops in Europe during the Napoleonic Wars in the early 19th Century, among other History.. Here I was born, here I live, and here I have my small antiques shop. We are proffesional antique dealers. I started in this world as a collector. My father introduced me into the world of antique collectibles and I started my own antique search at flea markets for my own small antiques collections since I was very young. I’ve been a professional antique dealer since the year 2003, when I decided to join my passion with my way of living. And more than 20 years as a collector, and I still have a lot to learn and only a little to teach. We are a registered legal antique bussiness, here in Spain. I have a small shop open to the public in Saragossa and we are open from 9:00 to 19:00 hours, Madrid time. You are welcome to visit me whenever you wish. And finally, as I mentioned before, I have my own web shop, for 5 years now, in Spanish language although it can be translated to almost any language using the Google Translator button, in the upper part of the web page. The translation is not perfect but its good in an 80%, totally understandable and you can always ask me. Mainly, I started specialized in Antique machines as gramophones, music boxes, clocks, watches but today, I also work with other first class collector items as cameras, militaria, antique scientific instruments To be exact, nowadays, I work with any first class antique that I could find at a correct price and that we could transport worldwide. We have a wide experience in packing and sending safely World Wide, from China and Singapore, to Dallas, San Francisco, New York or London, Canada, and of course almost all European Countries, many American ones including Mexico, Argentina and Colombia, and not forgetting Australia, South Africa, Israel and some in the Middle East as Catar and Emirates. We have sent successfully, from fragile items as Chinese Porcelain, to heavy items as Slot Coin Machines, not together into the same box, of course! . We can send almost everything with security, no matter how big or heavy it is, if the client wants to pay the price, because some heavy or big items or delicate items into big boxes are specially expensive to send, not perhaps within Europe, but sometimes to America or Asia and some require custom made packing, as custom made wooden boxes or special foam for transport protection. We work with Selected pieces. All my items are first class collectors items, in excellent conditions , conservation state or/and working conditions. If talking about antique machines, most of them are in perfect working conditions, perfect conservation state or perfectly restored. The few that are not, because it was not possible to repair it, it’s clearly indicated. I like to work with the best pieces that I can find. I prefer to work only with selected pieces. Selected’ doesnt mean’unaffordable’. My pieces have very correct prices, depending on the rarity and the conservation state of the piece itself. Every piece has a price rank, from junk state to museum state, that I consider is the highest one. Selected means that I prefer to work with Museum State pieces, or near, and First Class collectors items, or near rather than other kind of low quality pieces. We guarantee the description and datation of all our pieces. I always give guarantee my descriptions, not only in general antiques, but even in the working condition of an antique machine. Of course, to be completely sincere, its mainly impossible to give a full guarantee in the working condition of an antique working machine with over or more than 100 years. Many things can happen inside an antique mechanism and todays perfectly working spring, could be the futures failure as far away as in ten years or as near as the next month. If necessary, we restore and/or repair and finally clean and/or adjust, all our antique machines, and if its there’s a defect or malfunctions, its clearly indicated in the description, video or pictures. We try to have all our pieces in perfect working conditions, but if a disaster occurs and the item gets out of order or damaged, for any reason, we can help to solve the problem or to help to repair it or to restore it. We work with first class professionals that can restore from antique medieval paintings to 13th Century silver, other metals as iron, copper and bronze, to any kind of wood. Also, we can repair antique machines as gramophones, antique clocks, typewriters and antique mechanical calculators. Our Priority is your satisfaction. And the most important of all, we always take great care of the customer service. Clients experience with antiques should be always pleasant and happy, or, if this is not completely possible, at least satisfactory and full of joy. Our workonly ends, not when we sell the piece, but when our client have the piece in his hands, safely and in good conditions. I speak English fluently, some French, and, of course, Spanish. Thanks for reading this, I hope to deal with you soon, and we stay in touch. The item “Antique and very rare solid gold pocket watch chain.

    Georgian Silver Ripon Chain Fusee Verge Paul Revere Pair Case Pocket Watch 1775
    A mint and very rare condition solid silver late-18th century verge chain driven fusee consular cased pocket watch by Thomas Edwards of Ripon, fully serviced, overhauled and keeping good verge time. The watch with the rare feature of a heavy and substantial silver pair case in fabulous condition. The watch has been fully serviced and overhauled by my watch maker. The watch comes from a private collection where it has clearly been looked after. On the evening of April 18, 1775, Paul Revere was sent for by Dr. Joseph Warren, the last major patriot leader left in Boston and a personal friend of Reveres. When he arrived at Dr. Warrens surgery, Revere found out that British regular troops were preparing to march to Concord, Massachusetts, to capture or destroy military stores that had been gathered there. Warren informed Revere that he had just received intelligence from his own spy network that the troops planned to stop in Lexington, Massachusetts, on the road to Concord and arrest Samuel Adams. Patriot leaders who were staying in a house owned by one of Hancocks relatives. Warren begged Revere to stop in Lexington and warn Adams and Hancock to get out of the way of the British troops. Warren also informed Revere that he had already sent one messenger to Lexington a Mr. William Dawes who had taken the longer land route out Boston Neck, around Back Bay, and over the bridge into Cambridge, Massachusetts, by Harvard College. The friend hung two lanterns, meaning the British planned to leave Boston by sea across the Charles River, as opposed to a single lantern, which would mean the troops planned to march entirely by land, by the same route William Dawes had taken. Presumably the water route would be shorter, although as it turned out the troops were so slow it really mattered very little which way they went. Successfully passing by the British warship HMS Somerset, that had been anchored close by where the ferries normally crossed to Charlestown, the two men dropped Revere off near the old Charlestown battery just outside of town. Making him way into Charlestown, Revere met with the local Sons of Liberty, who verified that they had seen his lantern signals (which by then were no longer necessary). Revere then borrowed a horse from Charlestown patriot John Larkin (who actually had to get the horse from his father, Samuel Larkin) and then set off through the countryside northwest towards Lexington and Concord. Narrowly escaping capture by a British patrol just outside of Charlestown, Revere charged his planned route somewhat and arrived in Lexington just past midnight. We do not know what he said at each of the houses along the road. We do know exactly what he said when he got to Lexington, however, as there was a sentry on duty outside the house where Adams and Hancock lodged, and that sentry, a Sergeant Monroe, later wrote down what happened. As Revere approached the house, Monroe told him not to make so much noise, that everyone in the house had retired for the night. Youll have noise enough before long! The regulars are coming out! Despite this, Revere still had trouble convincing the sentry to let him pass until John Hancock, who was still awake and heard the commotion, recognized Reveres voice, after which Revere was allowed to enter the house and deliver his news. About 30 minutes later William Dawes arrived. The two messengers refreshed themselves (probably got something to eat and drink) and then decided to continue on to the town of Concord, to verify that the military stores had been properly dispersed and hidden away. Along the road they were joined by a third man, a Dr. Samuel Prescott, who they recognized as a High Son of Liberty. Soon afterwards they were all stopped by a British patrol. Dawes, who had probably turned aside to alarm a house, noticed what was going on and made his escape. The British herded Prescott and Revere into a nearby meadow, when Prescott suddenly said Put on! (meaning scatter) and the two patriots suddenly rode off in different directions. Prescott, a local man, successfully eluded capture, and alarmed the militia in Lincoln and Concord; Revere chose the wrong patch of woods to head for and was recaptured by more British soldiers. Held for a while, questioned, and even threatened, Revere was eventually released, although his horse was confiscated. Making his way back into Lexington on foot, Revere assisted Adams and Hancock to leave for Woburn, Massachusetts. Revere and Hancocks secretary, a Mr. Lowell, were engaged in carrying away a trunk of papers that Hancock had left behind when the British troops marched onto Lexington Green. Revere reported that he could hear the gunshots and see the smoke from the musket fire when the skirmish of Lexington Green began, but he could not identify who had fired first, as a building just then obscured his view. UNUSUAL FEATURES : The watch in simply magnificent condition and from a private collection where it has clearly been looked after very well. Watches from this period with no pin holes, excess solder filling or stretch marks are very uncommon today. The watch is best described as a time-capsule from the 18th century in simply stunning condition. THE DIAL : 98% mint, the sepia coloured enamel dial with black Roman numerals in stunning condition with no hairlines, but a small surface mark to dial edge at 1.00. Finely made beetle and poker hands. The bullseye glass in very fine condition, with a tiny edge chip. Diameter is 35 mm.
