Thanks, Zen - Not sure anyone really cares who I am. Apologies if you think I am just coming here to get information, if I'm honest, I probably am. I am just trying to do a bit of research on an old timepiece, I'm no expert and would normally have little else to contribute! There is very little information about these watches and I would simply like to speak to present the information to enthusiasts so that if and when I ever hand this down I can tell the recipient a bit more about it - as opposed to how I got it...with none. If it makes any difference, as I understand it it has been owned by my family from new, I acquired it when my mother died, and it sat in a draw since then.
I have taken the back off:
It would seem that it is Silver, albeit in need of a polish. Has a few repair marks. The hallmark points to George Stockwell London If any of the other marks mean anything to anyone - I would love to know!!!!
It would also seem from the patent number it is a HAFIS movement - that patent number was granted I think (google) 1924. 15 Jewels... what jewels would they be!?
The Hafis name was a trademark owned in the US by a firm in New York city - Which would also make sense as I have found that the GS hallmark links to an importer active as a foreign and general shipping agent in London and the 925 bit would be 1925. So it could well of originated from New York!?
