I am selling this W. Ehrhardt deckwatch, the case with a diameter of approximately 58mm is made of sterling silver. According to the British silver hallmarks it was made in Birmingham in 1902. A deckwatch was a timepiece to be read when navigating with a sextant, often a ship would have a marine chronometer that acted as a mother clock to one or multiple deck watches.

I received additional information about this watch from the Royal Observatory in Greenwich, you can examine two photos made from the ledgers about it's history. From these records I was able to find some history about the HMS Pellew that carried this particular watch:

12/12/1917 while escorting a convoy of six vessels in the Norwegian Sea they were attacked by four large German Destroyers. The other escorts, HMS Partridge and 4 Trawlers (Commander Fullerton, Livingstone, Lord Alverstone, and Tokio), were sunk. The ships in the convoy were also sunk (Bolista, Bothnia, Cordova, Kong Magnus, Maracaibo, Torlief.)
Pellew was damaged with 5 dead and forced to break off the action She was hit by a shell in the engine room, killing all the engineers. Luckily the turbines continued to run unattended for awhile and she escaped, badly holed and partially disabled, into Norwegian waters. She was able to make repairs with HMS Sabrina before being interned and made her way home



The handbuilt movement has screwed chatons and a hand engraved balance bridge and it runs accurately. What makes this movement special is the central seconds indication where most pocket watches show the running seconds in a separate sub-dial. It prominently shows the military broad arrow on the movement and on the enamel dial. The case looks very good with only the crown showing some wear, the dial has no cracks or any other kind of damage,

The dial, movement, case and wooden box are all numbers matching, so everything belongs together.

This auction will be started without a reserve price, please examine the photos before bidding.
