A cracking English watch By Rotherham.
It is a fairly rare survivor because although for such a premium English movement a reasonable number were made to be sold into the trade (particularly to J.W. Benson), a large number have been broken up for scrap, mainly I suspect because as a size 12 they were popular in a solid gold case such as this.
Despite being made in 1925 it is a true English Lever and has 19 jewels.
A classic English watch.
