This is an antique E. Research indicates it was made around 1911.The case is marked as gold filled, meaning a thin layer of gold has been bonded to a sub metal most likely brass. You can see on the bottom by the hinges where it has worn through the gold fill.
There is an engraved design on the back, but its so fancy, I cant really tell if it is a monogram or just a design of some sort. Inside the back cover, there is an inscription, To Edward P. Taylor from His Salesmen, August 3rd 1912.
Ive tried to find out who this man was, but have not had much success. Could it be the namesake on Toronto, Ontario, Canadas AGO art museum library? This watch is in good working condition. It winds, you can set the time, and it has been keeping time accurately for more than an hour. It also has an adjuster inside to speed it up or slow it down as needed.The face plate has a crack and chunk missing at 9 oclock. There are a few minor dings in the case. The glass feels plastic to me, so I assume it has been changed at some point. Please see the pictures best physical description. See my store for many more vintage and NOS items.
