This is a very rare collector watch – Gustav Becker was world renowned for the clocks they made in the 1840s in Austria and later in Poland, but not for wristwatches. There are no similar “modern” Swiss Made wristwatches with this movement available in shops, which makes this watch a “one of a kind” authentic item marked with the same famous GB anchor logo from the 1850s.
Excellent condition, no box or papers. The watch is working and keeping a pretty precise time, but as for any other used or vintage watch, a basic revision is advisable.
Most of the watches that I am selling are liquidation or collector items, therefor I make no claims and give no warranty regarding continual accuracy of time keeping. Used, antique or vintage watches may need servicing, even if they are in good running condition. Unless otherwise stated they may need to be cleaned, oiled, adjusted and or timed. I cannot guarantee a used watch to be waterproof or water resistant.
