3/4 plate

SW, HC style only


gilt, nickel or mixed metal

numbers begin at about 1000 and run slightly over 2000

all movements signed "Lancaster Watch"--Adams and Perry signatures do not exist

dials plain or signed Lancaster

high grade movement but beware of poor restorations, recases and made up dials or ground down movements

very difficult to locate in original cases which were solid gold; faked up cases exist

highly popular watch which is very scarce but not rare as neophites claim

serial number one exists, but a special watch; several exist with special inscriptions without serial numbers

one PL exists in nickel
