Anonymous Dial Vintage Tank Case Dress Watch in 9k Gold - BWC Case - c.1944

$1,024.00 USD

A Beautiful 9k Gold Vintage Anonymous Dial Tank Case Dress Watch With Small Seconds Sub Dial and BWC (British Watch Cases Ltd) Case. 

What’s On Offer 

This attractive tank case 9k gold vintage watch is in really nice condition, the silver dial is rather charming with its Arabic numerals, tank-shaped minutes subdial and blued steel hands. The silver chapter ring is a beautiful addition and adds another touch of opulence. 

The fine 9ct gold case was crafted by BWC (British Watch Case Company Ltd., London), who actually made cases for Rolex at one time. The inside back of the case is hallmarked with the Edinburgh engraving and the letter O which dates the watch to c.1944. 

The movement is unmarked but the watch is Swiss-made, has 15 jewels and is running rather well, having been recently serviced by our watchmaker! This would make a really lovely gift for any vintage watch lover, it wears beautifully on the wrist and the strap could be changed to something a little more opulent to really finish it off nicely - the perfect dress watch.  We do stock some beautiful straps so if you have something in mind, do get in touch, a new strap can really transform a watch and bring it to life! I rather wish I had done this before we had it photographed!
