Exactly as described - looks and works great. Truly beautiful piece of American watchmaking! I bought two (this one and the Illinois grade 172) and will post identical reviews. Both have pretty decorations of the movement and are great! Responsive seller!

I absolutely love this watch. It is even better than described. Very fast shipping. It can be kind of scary buying a vintage watch online, since it is not a brand new item, and you wonder what you might get. But with the accurate description and pictures provided by pmtime and their wanting the customer to be completely satisfied, you don't have to worry. I was so pleased, I ended up buying a second vintage pocket watch from them.
