its a 1903 solid silver birmingham ...lovely clean solid movement and keeps time very nicely..the back and front flip open with a removable back internal cap to show the workings..


Gorgeous. You must have been a very good boy this year then :lol:.

Have you got a chain in mind for it?. Is the movement marked? I'm sure it is, the reason I ask is that I just can't spot the finer detail in the photograph.

That is clean, very nice stuff. Is it a Dennison case?. I'm not too sure on the movement (wrist, is my preferred position you see? :wink:) what is the 'Star' mark, found on the movement itself, indicating? - Would it be Dennison's Star mark alà Sun, Moon & Star?.

Love the engraving work too :).

I half jokingly asked my father-in-law for a can of matt black spray paint (something that is always good to have around), which actually turned up in my pile of presents today. Top man! :D

Fantastic. Wait till you see Saturn it'll blow your socks off.


If you have an android or Iphone/pad the Sky Safari app is really really good or Stellarium is available on free download for pc, they save a lot of faffing around with star atlases.
