A Fine Keyless Deck Watch with 24 hour dial by Godfrey, London.
The substantial plain silver case with stepped back and bezel, inner cuvette, gold crown and pinset shoulder and hinge. The white enamel dial with Arabic 1-24 hour numerals, outer minutes chapter, offset seconds at ‘6’ and blued steel ‘spade’ hands, being signed below ’24’, GODFREY, LONDON. The very fine, three quarter plate movement with chronometer damascending decoration, having screwed in jewels throughout and an English lever escapement with split bi-metallic temperature compensated balance, gold timing screws and a blued steel overcoil hairspring, the whole contained within a rosewood keep box.
Twenty-four hour dials are extremely rare.
