An attractive purse watch with a pleasing dual-action sprung closure, the sterling silver and leather covered case was made in the UK by Adie Brothers Ltd; the movement was supplied by Crusader, a sub brand of the Swiss watchmakers Henri Sandoz & Fils. The two-toning of the silvered dial provides contrast between the background of the Arabic chapter and the main dial body. The inner case is hinged into the outer and ‘clicks’ into place with a lip at its lower edge, this allows the inner case to be easily lifted to gain access to the winding crown. The main outer case has engine-turned covers – the front is opened by sliding away to release the sprung cover which flips up to reveal the dial.
