Winegartens London gold vintage wristwatch, hallmarked 1960
A 9ct yellow gold centre seconds wristwatch
In very attractive condition, this wristwatch appears to have been only lightly used and retains its original Winegartens card presentation box and what is almost certainly the original leather strap and pin buckle. Winegartens, a retailer based in Bishopsgate, London, were perhaps best known for the railway regulator watches that they produced from the early part of the 20th century. For the present watch, Winegartens used a good quality 17 jewel calibre by the specialist Swiss movement manufacturers A. Schild. The gold case was supplied to Winegartens by the English case maker, Dennison and is the latter firm’s case model 12325.
