Outstanding 15 inch antique silver Albert chain with an exceptional 9ct gold-capped silver fob.... #antique #antiques #pocketwatch #watch #jewellery #antiquesilver #silver #silverjewelry #vintage #vintagesilver #vintagejewelry #costumejewelry #fob #gold #9ctgold #periodjewelry #Victorian #edwardian #artdeco #1920s
Most silver fobs with 9ct gold were merely electroplated...with a very thin gold layer that required no specific identification.
This example...and the first one I've ever encountered...is gold-capped, with a substantial layer of gold thick enough to actually warrant two separate gold hallmarks.
This is coming up for sale...DM for further information.

Early 20thC Longines cal.19.70 pocket watch movement....imported into the UK by Baume & Co.

This movement, along with my previously posted Joseph Johnson piece, was rescued from a dealer...
..the gold case having been unceremoniously removed and scrapped 🙁

Original 1972 Austin A55 1/2 ton light van... one of the last ever to come off the production line. Gave way to the (then) ubiquitous and ultimately grossly unreliable Morris Marina 😐

This example is still used daily... and pretty much all original. Note the great chrome 'eyelashes'....class!

Leon Breitling founded his workshop in 1884, creating precision timekeepers originally intended for sports and the scientific industry. The development and subsequent respect afforded to the name is well known. However it is not generally appreciated that Breitling was to succumb to the late 1970s quartz revolution. In 1979, it's future almost untenable, the company was bought by Sicura....a small but solid watch company, in existence for decades, which was consistently producing respected watches.
After only a few years, and after a successful company regroup, it was decided that the Breitling name should be revived. Thus Breitling was reborn....and everyone recognises the high end brand today.
Early 80s Breitling watches were actually Sicura pieces.
