Solid Silver Zenith Pocket Watch Circa 1919. An antique silver cased Zenith pocket watch. In 1865, George Favre-Jacot started to work for himself as a clockmaker. In 1875, he succeeded in his goal to produce reasonably priced, precise fob watches. He was so successful that his company employed one-third of the working population of Locle in Switzerland.
In 1896, he won the Gold Medal at the Swiss National Exhibition and in 1903 he won first prize in the Neuchâtel Observatory competition for chronometers. In 1911, Mr Favre-Jacot retired and left the flourishing business to his descendants, under the name Zenith. This watch has a Swiss stem-winding movement which is ticking away nicely and the time keeping is good to within around one minute over 24 hours. The movement is signed Zenith. The movement is protected by an inner cover which has Continental hallmarks and the Zenith mark.The watch measures 49mm diameter excluding the winding stem and the loop. The case is silver and there are Continental hallmarks, English hallmarks for Glasgow (import mark), together with the Zenith mark. There are some marks to the outer case, mainly to the back, but overall the condition is very acceptable for an antique pocket watch. The watch glass is in nice condition with just minor marks.
The enamel dial has some damage around the edge but a lot of this is covered up by the bezel when the front is closed. Blued steel hands, subsidiary seconds dial and an outer minute track.
