With its 17 jewel, hand-wound mechanical movement on a gold plated single watch Albert chain, the watch is beautifully displayed in a presentation box and retails at £225.00.
Deacon's and the GWR
Deacon & Son (Swindon) Ltd became a major supplier of timepieces to the GWR in 1853 when the company’s founder George Deacon became a sub-contractor.
The Regulator Clock by which all timepieces supplied to the GWR were tested stands proudly in the company’s newly refurbished clock and watch showroom, and is well worth a visit.
