DSCN7561An extremely rare Victorian Royal Mail train Guards issue pocket watch no 53, by Gilbert Bland, circa 1870

 On offer is this extremely rare Victorian Royal Mail Train Guards issue pocket watch no 53, by Gilbert Bland, circa 1870. A very large and heavy front and rear opening case with good hinges measuring 62mm in diameter excluding the top loop section and 25mm deep and a total length of 90mm. Signed to the rear case section with the Crown of Victoria & VR and No 53 being the same as the dial. The fully signed gilt movement retains the same matching numbers to what looks to be a nickel case. The dial has one short craze and hairline at 3 and a shallow edge chip at 1 both as shown in the pics. The watch is in full working order holding time. For the serious collector and probably as a Royal Mail train issued watch, a once in a lifetime opportunity. Price  £1650.00
