This could be a Arnold Adams of London.Its a size 16,two tone engraved leaf work,the roman numerals are engraved,key wind,open face.I really like the dial.

    No date Jason.Just the standard Argent stamp.I know so many Arnold watch makers in London,doesn't make it easy to trace down.
    Oh wow the second hand is ticking,just from moving the watch around,Balance wheel looks fine.Just gave it a wind.lets see if it will keep time.

    Not bad.Its been 5 hours and its 3 min off.
    I guess I'll just call it a Arnold from London.
    Well which Arnold? That will probably always remain a mystery.

    I just went to check the watch,and still only 3 min off,so i'm thinking its not off at all.I just didn't give it time to get running then readjust it. I love key winds!
