Avia 19mm (6-OS) 16J adj. 3p ladies' pocket watch, handsome nickel split plate movement with bold red ruby jewels and a bar-style damascene pattern, silver metal dial with a lovely sunburst engraving pattern in the center and fancy black Arabic-style numbers has some fading and spots of discoloration at the edge, blue steel moon-style hands, green gold filled (GGF) square smooth polish case with a deep fancy monogram on the back, possibly "RK", floral engraving on the front bezel, replacement yellow gold filled (YGF) swivel-style fancy bow, glass crystal and a small attachment on the frame at 6 o'clock that would allow conversion to a wrist watch by attaching a watch band, case is showing normal moderate wear overall but does have a small line of brass on the back immediately under the crown, measures approx. 21mm wide x 29mm long x 7mm thick.  An attractive, vintage watch in very good cosmetic condition!

While this watch does want to run and will tick along in controled situations, after assessing the watch it does look to have a broken pivot on the escape wheel.  We do not have a replacement part and it is cost prohibitive for us to repair for the current retail value we have assessed the watch at.  This is a lovely watch that would be worth the time for training or hobby repair.

We are selling this item AS-IS as far as running condition.

This watch is in our Mechanic's Special section because we consider it to have serious cosmetic or mechanical problems that are currently cost prohibitive to repair in-house, but the watch itself is of a high enough quality that it may be of interest as a repair project for some of our customers. Please read the Full Description, where we attempt to note the specific flaws or problems with the watch. In many cases, these problems do result in the watch not running, winding, or setting properly as is.

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.

Unlike modern quartz watches, most vintage watches need daily winding in order to keep the watch functioning for timekeeping. Additionally, there are a number of different ways to set the time other than simply pulling the crown away from the watch body. We are happy to provide an overview of each of the different setting types on our "How To Use" page, where we also provide information on proper winding techniques for each style and some suggestions for the proper long term care and storage of your watch.
