"Antique 9ct Gold Full Hunter Pocketwatch & 9ct Gold Double Albert Chain Boxed" GWO Heavy 127.3g. The case is fully English hallmarked for 9 carat gold and it was assayed in London.

The overall weight of the watch & chain is a very heavy 127.3 grams in total. The unit is complete with an antique fitted leather box which is marked.
