THIS LOVELY MOVEMENT HAS BEEN FULLY SERVICED BY MY WATCHMAKER. The watch keeps time as tested over a 12 hour period to within a few mins per day. Please do not expect total accuracy from this type of watch (it is after all over 100 years old). The chainring (bow) looks to be gold but has not been tested so it may be plated.

The Albertina is in excellent condition. There are very small lozenge shaped import marks on the T-bar but the chain is unmarked. Please remember that vintage watches have survived for many decades by being treated well.
Vintage watches are not for wearing while doing yard work, working out, or swimming. Vintage watches cannot keep time like their quartz cousins and will need altering on average between +-2 to +-5 mins per day. They are a little more destructible than modern watches.
Vintage watches also require periodic service and cleaning. Every couple of years, they would like their 20,000 mile checkup, oil change, and general service.By taking care of your vintage watch, you will have years of great service, and a quality heirloom to pass to another generation.
