    I picked this up today. A very nice example of a Kroeber Iron case.

    Virtually perfect finish and bronze work. Dial is a little worn but worth keeping as it is original, however may be missing filigree over-ring. I found some with, some without, and some with an all brass dial. Replaced broken glass in bezel. Note the beautiful flower etching on the rear plate. Kroeber made some beautiful cases and although made none of his own movements had some beautiful work done by other makers.

    Yeah. Actually, the movement is in pretty good shape. I would say someone has kept it up pretty well. I will still clean it and check for any other wear soon but for now it is running and doing well.

    Here's pictures of my Kroeber 'Louis XIV'! Beige enamel case; visible E/W; same green paper dial but movement doesn't have your fancy etching.
