Tollet - Véritable Montre Chemin De Fer - Antique Railway Certified Pocket Watch
€325.00

All original and freshly restored with care for authenticity, now offered for sale is a Tollet branded Roskopf pocket watch dating back to the early 1900's. Tollet was (and still is) a jeweller and watch retailer based in Brussels, Belgium dating back to 1902. Selling some of the most prestigious brands in watchmaking (Cartier, TAG Heuer, Piaget, Breitling among others), at one point they were also selling Roskopf pocket watches such as this one. This particular example is a railway grade pocket watch, as indicated by the "Véritable Montre Chemin De Fer" and winged wheels logo around the outer edge of the dial. The metal case back features an engraving of a locomotive, as well as a coat of arms depicting a roaring lion. It can only be assumed that this is the "Flemish Lion", the official symbol for the Flemish region in Belgium.

The case itself measures approximately 54mm in diameter, making it a fairly large pocket watch. The white enamel dial is in exceptional condition given its age, and finished with green luminous accents all around. Blued steel cathedral style hands indicate the time, and can be set by pulling out the onion shaped crown. Inside we find a Roskpof Patented pin-lever movement with patent number 30353, which was filed in La Chaux-De-Fonds, Switzerland, around 1904. It is freshly serviced, and accurately keeping time. An original lead customs seal is still attached around the crown: these lead seals were attached to products to indicate that customs duties for said product were paid for.

The example sold here has been used throughout its life, but is still in very good condition considering its age. The watch was lovingly restored with eye for authenticity. Its movement was completely disassembled, cleaned and lubricated, and is working fine. The case has been cleaned entirely, but left unpolished to maintain its patina. The plexiglass was polished to remove some slight scratches. Please study the pictures in this listing well: they show the watch in the condition that it is in, with no digital enhancements to make it look better than it is. We are sure that you like honesty, and so do we. In all, a very well preserved and fully functional vintage pocket watch.

We usually ship the same day your payment comes in, and provide full insurance as well as a tracking code for all of our packages.
