Here is a great piece of history in a watch – a sterling silver “Trench” watch made in a steling silver Borgel one-piece case that was made in 1915.
A Borgel case was invented in the early 1900’s to try yo make a watch as water resistant as possible by having the watch case in one piece and the movment coming out through the front. This is achieved by unscrewing the top and unscrewing the movement through the frone as well.
The movement is a 15 jewelled movement, and the dial is all original and still so very easy to read.
A great vintage watch that is a real talking piece.
