- Additional Info
Along with the cosmetic problems, the watch is currently not running, the chain is ok but the holes or chain mandrell (cone) are worn, it does have good balance, and it is missing (what we believe) is the regulator. This is a little known Swedish watch company, which in itself is unusual, and from the hallmarks on the case, this watch is from 1748 or 1788. A little attention from a patient watch maker could turn this item into a fine addition to your early watch collection. We are selling this item AS-IS as far as running condition.
With that in mind, we do NOT offer our standard 30-day return on any Mechanic's Special items.
On these items, all sales are AS IS and FINAL.
