Catalogue Note

Accompanied by a Charles Frodsham and Co Certificate of Origin confirming the watch entered into their stock in 1904.

It is interesting to note that the manufacturing records state that this watch was originally tested in a silver case at Kew and was found to have achieved 83 marks in December 1904. The watch was then transferred to a gold case made by Nicole Nielson in April 1905.
