Description

This is a pocket watch and case from the General Watch Company. The movement is a 6 jewel movement with 2 adjustments and is labeled "Paradox." Sometimes, when gently shaken, the balance wheel swings and the second hand advances. Other times, it is like the balance wheel is "stuck" and it does not budge. For that reason, I am selling this watch as non-functional.

I do not see any rust on this movement, but there is a great deal of discoloration and tarnish, especially around the outer area of the movement. The watch dial is in excellent condition, with very little wear and no chips or cracks that I can see. All three hands are present, with minimal wear to the finish. However, the tip of the second hand is bent slightly downwards.

This pocket watch case appears to be some type of base metal. It shows a great deal of wear, scratches, scuffs, and grime, but I don't see any obvious damage or dents. The front lens is fairly clear, but does have some wear, mostly around the outer edge. The back of the case opens and shuts securely, but feels a bit "tight." It is also labeled as being from the General Watch Company. The bow is present, but swings loosely. The crown is also present, but does not wind the movement.

This pocket watch measures just over 47mm wide and is just under 58mm tall from the bottom to the top of the crown. This watch is being sold for parts, restoration, or re-purposing. Enjoy!

If you are unhappy with your purchase for any reason, please contact me. You can return it within 7 days of the date it was received (in original, unused, and undamaged condition) for a FULL refund minus shipping fees.

Please let me know the reason for the return. I will refund the purchase price ONLY (not the shipping, return shipping & handling), unless other arrangements were made with me before purchase.

Refunds will not be issued until the original item is returned!

Shipping policies

Free USPS shipping in the U.S. on all purchases over $50! I ship via USPS Monday-Saturday, with the exception of USPS holidays. I offer first class and priority mail shipping options. I highly recommend upgrading to Priority Mail for expensive items, as you receive $50 of insurance included in the cost (more is available), 2-3 day delivery, and a tracking number with Priority Mail. Current Priority Mail pricing (in the US) for the small flat rate box is $6.45, no matter how much your package weighs. If you would like a different shipping method, or more insurance, please convo me, and I will check on rates for your order.
