FREY WATCH COMPANY WRIST WATCH
WAS NOT A MILITARY WATCH BUT
IS BELIEVED TO HAVE BEEN ORIGINALLY
PURCHASED BY A BRITISH WWII OFFICER

 

IMG_0211.JPG (112617 bytes)

EXTENSIVE RESTORATION WAS REQUIRED
DIAL HAD BUT A FAINT OUTLINE
RADIUM WAS MISSING
THE WHITE BACKGROUND WAS
PEELED TO BASE AND EVEN THOUGH THE
ENTIRE HEAVY HALLMARKED

ORIGINAL LEATHER STRAP'S
STERLING SILVER BUCKLE

IMG_0167.JPG (97651 bytes)
ABOVE IS THE CASE RESTORED TO BRIGHT STERLING SILVER FINISH

HERE ROCK CLEANED THE CASE & CASE BACK/MOVEMENT HOLDER
THIS WAS DIFFICULT BECAUSE NO SILVER "DIP"
COULD BE USDED DUE TO FACT STRAP WAS SEWN ON AT FACTORY DECADES AGO

SO EVERYTHING WAS ACCOMPLISHED BY HAND

NOTE:
IF STRAP IS EVER CUT OFF, A WIRE LUGGED
STRAP CAN BE USED

IMG_0181.JPG (141535 bytes)

NOTE IMPERFECTIONS

ALSO NOTE THE SWEEP OF COLORS?

CASE WAS TREATED AND FINISHED
BEFORE IT WAS SOLD WITH A BLACK FINISH
RATHER THAN BRIGHT AND SHINING SILVER

IMG_0164.JPG (81339 bytes)

THE ORIGINAL BUCKLE ON ORIGINAL STRAP
IS ALSO 935 STERLING
[STERLING IS ACTUALLY 0.925]
NOTE THE BLACK FINISH?
IT IS NOT FROM AGED SILVER BUT AN ACTUAL
BLACKENING FINISH
YOU CAN SEE IT WHERE IT HAS "PEELED"

IMG_0205.JPG (168430 bytes)

SO, THE FINISH WAS NOT FROM AGE AS MUCH FROM INTENT.
THE CHEMICAL PROCESS' BEGINS THE JOURNEY OF THE SILVER INTO
CREATING THAT HARD "SHELL". THUS, AFTER ALL THE CLEANING W/BRUSH AND A LIGHT POLISH TO REMOVE ACTUAL DAMAGE, A SULPHER AGENT WAS USED TO BLACKEN THE SILVER AGAIN.

A LOOK AT CASE

IMG_0237.JPG (95129 bytes)

ANOTHER LOOK AT ROCK'S DUPLICATION OF
THE SULPHER WASH FINISH. IT WILL AGE WITH GRACE
AND NOW LOOKS LIKE IT IS 100 YEARS OLD
HOW IT SHOULD LOOK!

IMG_0246.JPG (132166 bytes)

THE DIAL IS EXACTLY AS THE IMPRESSION WAS
I MEAN EXACTLY.
NOTE THE SMALL -IN COMPARISON-- CATHEDRAL HANDS?
WHEN THE CRYSTAL IS PLACED
IT HAS AN EXTREME CURVE LIKE THE DIAL
MOUNTED IT IS CLOSE TO DIAL
THESE ORIGINAL HANDS FIT PERFECTLY

TO THIS VERY WATCH

ANYTHING LONGER WOULD COME IN CONTACT WITH CRYSTAL

IMG_0210.JPG (95027 bytes)

I WOULD SAY THIS GLASS CRYSTAL IS CURVED!

IMG_0236.JPG (106593 bytes)

UNLESS STATED OTHERWISE all watches offered by GSW have been SERVICED. Some required REPAIR AND RESTORATION! Normal Servicing of Mechanical Watches by an EXPERT PROFESSIONAL will run between $180.00 to 580.00, depending on the complication of the movement and that is WITHOUT parts that may be required. SERVICING means DISASSEMBLING THE ENTIRE WATCH AND MOVEMENT, CLEANING SAME, OILING, LUBING AND REASSEMBLING, timing and Sealing. RESTORATION is a separate service from SERVICING and may include CRYSTAL, DIAL, HANDS, CASE, LUGS and BAND. So, WHEN YOU VIEW VINTAGE AND CLASSIC WATCHES OFFERED BY OTHER VENDORS/DEALERS, the question is: WAS THE WATCH SERVICED?
