Victor Kullberg, Liverpool Road, one of London’s most famous watch and chronometer manufacturers. Full details of those who worked on this watch can probably be found in the Kullberg record books, held at London's Guildhall Library - some workbooks are missing.
A very good and rare complete example of Kullberg's best work, in a smaller than normal size, but most wearable and in fine original condition, the enamel monogram not restored, etc. Serviced and guaranteed.
