"Greetings!" "This is a "3" day auction!" Up for bids, is a ladies 0 size Atlas Hunting Watch! (The Columbia Watch Co., Waltham,
Massachusetts, U.S.A... (1896-1899) Serial# 114,337, dates this timepiece to circa 1898! Only manufactured for 3 years, this sparkling
4 jewel lever set "Duplex escapement" movement runs fine, and has been keeping time on my desk for the past several hours! (*I also
have an identical very clean 0 size Atlas Duplex hunting movement, dial & hands (with good balance) that came out of a damaged gold
case... which will be included in this auction!~see picture #12) Up front, the original Roman porcelain dial is very nice! The dial is
complimented by the original set of blued light spade hands! Showing a beautiful gold luster, this nicely engine turned Essex Watch
Case Co. "Columbia" 20 year 14k gold filled hunting case shows only a trace of light wear & use! (which are a few scratches from
opening the dust cover in times past!) The front lid lift spring functions like new!*As with all hunting cased timepieces, always push
down on the crown first, before opening and closing the front lid! Never just snap the lid closed! Damage will occur where the front
lid attaches to the release spring! Bidding on this fine running 115 year old Atlas timepiece (with spare movement) starts at $9.99,
with "No Reserve!"*Payment is to be received within "5 days" of auctions closing, "No Exceptions!" Thank you for stopping by...
and "Best of Luck!"
