I know most of you know the name Westclox but usually think of vintage clocks and pocket watches, not wristwatches.
They offered a wide variety of wristwatches for ladies' and gentlemen and
this one is a great example of one that has been very well preserved!
The 17.6 mm X 19.2 gold plated case, excluding crown and lugs, surrounds an crisp white dial that contrasts beautifully against gold stick hour and minute hands, raised gold numbers, and black outer chapter.
The 17 jewel, manual wind movement sets and winds effortlessly, is running strong, and keeping very good time.
It has a stainless steel, snap-down back and is matched with a gold capped vintage stainless steel, scissor/flex bracelet which may be original to the watch.
STOCK CODE: W-52
ABOUT THE BRAND:
The History of Westclox Wrist Watches:
Westclox introduced Wrist Ben, their first wrist watch, in 1936. Wrist Ben was on the market for years and went through many style changes. Other popular models and their years of introduction include: Judge, 1938; Rocket, 1939; new Wrist Ben, 1950 (curved to fit the wrist); LaSalle, 1950; Troy, 1953; new Rocket, 1953; Kim, 1953; new Judge, 1953.
Westclox made their own watch movements for many years, but starting in the 1960's some watches were made in Germany. Beginning in the 1970's, some with jeweled lever movements were made in Japan and France.
