Art Deco Erima Rose GF Swiss Pocket Watch, Wadsworth Referee Case, Dorsons Watch Pin, Runs #d144
This is a wonderful Swiss-made, Art Deco era pocket watch by the Erima Watch Co. The watch has 15 jewels, is rose gold filled and hangs from a Dorsons 12K rose gold-filled, bow-shaped watch brooch. The watch has a gold color dial, black Arabic numerals, black hands and is complete with its crown and stem. The watch case is an open face, half hunter style by the Wadsworth Watch Case Co. It is hallmarked as a Wadsworth Referee case, warranted 20 years and has a serial number of 4034125. The trademark on the case was issued on May 19, 1914. I was unable to find much information on the Erima Watch Co., but am dating the watch to circa the 1920s based on the case trademark. The watch wound and ran well when tested. It's a fantastic watch!

The watch and watch brooch measure about 2 1/8 inches long, 1 1/16 inches wide and weigh 16.3 grams. The pieces are signed as follows

1. Watch Case, Inside Back-Wadsworth Referee, Warranted 20 Years, Serial No. 4034125.

2. Watch, Inside on the Movement-Erima Watch Swiss, 15 Jewels, and 2 Adj.

3. Watch Brooch, On the back-Dorsons 1/20 12K GF.

This is a fine pocket watch and a great piece of timekeeping history. The watch and case are in very good condition. The watch has the expected scratches and minor scuffs from its 100+ years of use. The face has a faint dark line that runs around the numerals on one side, which appears to have been from the movement of the hour hand in the past. As mentioned previously, the watch wound and ran well when it was tested. Due to its age, I cannot guarantee it will continue to run without additional cleaning and servicing. It's a marvelous find!
