This is another Stunning Antique Pocket Watch that dates to 1904
making it 106 years old, just amazing! The pictures do not do it justice at
all. It is in excellent working order and has been fully serviced by a
Specialist and comes with the remainder of the warranty for that service. It
comes complete with the original fitted jeweller’s presentation case stating
its origin to be W. H. Beck Company, Sioux City, USA.
The actual watch is elegantly decorated with black & red
enamel numbers and Blue Steel hands for all three hands, including the second
hand. The dust cover is engraved FMF from KFF Xmas ’06 for 1906.
The case is a Hunter Case with each cover tooled with a similar design
– the only difference being the cartouche on the front cover has the initial F.
The gold’s hue is a warm yellow with a hint
of Rose typical of the era.
The movement’s serial number is 11317600 which date it to 1904. The

Near MINT Antique condition! There are some subtle,
insignificant signs of use that are minimal. There are no dents, no damage, minimal
wear to the interior and no repairs evident. There is a slight craze line to
the face. There is absolutely nothing that detracts from this lovely old piece
and it would make addition to a collection of Victorian antique pocket watches.
VALUE POINT: Original near-new condition with original
presentation case & in Working Order – newly serviced
