Hi, and welcome
We LOVE photos, especially of watches.
I know all of John Harwoods prototypes - none had exhibition backs!
My feeling these were converted by owners or watchmakers (jobbers) to show off...
The chance of that watch being fake is about 1%
My feeling its genuine
And FAKES dont make with crown in wrong place.
I say GENUINE
LOL - ME TOO!!
Happy to host you in my apartment is Spain in 2020
I have 3 bedrooms on a golf course
Thats one of the few books I have here with me.
Let me check it tomorrow.
Most of these books are written by clowns
Its the 10-1/2 HUNTER movement developed by Aegler
Marked SUPERBALANCE which was Wilsdorf new marketing from 1935, prior to that they termed it...
What book is this anyway??
VERY, very rare!
What we dont know, is if they started life like that or a mosre recent modification
I am pretty sure HAMILTON NEVER made two tone cases
I am also sure they made 14Kt gold cases.
I suspect your whole case is 14Kt gold
Oh! I have that and a few others.
I also have the Spanish Patent - that I doubt any others have
Yes _ do have one with a display back
Its needs serviced, But I have not done it (sad) - Its a very "strange" piece
Thank You - appreciated
HERE is one of mine - 14Kt Gold - MINT
I have the original box
Here is the American...
John Harwood was awarded the British Horological Society Gold Medal one of just seven awarded in past 80 years
Yes I am that person
and YES I pay attention.
The modern so called HARWOOD has NOTHING to do with the original John Harwood or his son in any way....
They NEVER used ETA movements.
John Harwood and the HARWOOD/PERPETUAL watch company was BRITISH
FORTIS and BLANCPAIN made the movements and assembled the watches.
Thats great you got your answer.
Happy for you
