Condition Report For Lot# 249:
GRO (winds, sets and ticks) weak balance motion, the mvt is dirty and has a light residue coating most surfaces with a few spots of minor oxidation and a couple of fine scratches but would look great after a cleaning. The gold filled case is in fair condition and well worn but with no brass showing through and a couple of minor nicks. The dial has hairlines between 1 and 2, at 3 & 7 and below the second's bit. The bow and crown show brass wearing through. The blued steel spade hands have some slight loss to the bluing. There is no crystal. This is a 2-star watch in the Shugart, Engle and Gilbert "WATCHES" price guide. The desirable and rare grade 951s were taken and then finished from a run of 961 movements.
Estimate: $450 - $550
