Offered for sale is an unusual gilded pendant watch decorated with imitation jewels; the incredibly small 17 jewel mechanical movement was manufactured by the famous Glashütte Uhrenbetriebe (GUB), located in the former East German Republic (DDR) and renowned for their exceptionally high quality time pieces that were used by the officials, military and state organisations throughout the Soviet Bloc. This piece is as new and unused but is probably 30 to 40 years old - so it will need a clean and service.

GUB Caliber 09.20 mechanical movement, 17 jewels, 5½ x 6¾"', signed: "Glashütte".

Gilt case decorated with artificial "diamonds".

Gold coloured, brushed effect face, signed "Clipper" and "17 Jewels".

Mechanical watches make the ideal gift - classic appearance and no battery to fade or fail. They do, however, require cleaning and oiling from time to time by a competent watchmaker and although usually good timekeepers, a mechanical watch needs to be wound regularly and the time will occasionally need to be reset.
