We are pleased to offer for your consideration this truly fine South Bend Pocket Watch Grade 411 circa 1925. The three Studebaker Brothers out of South Bend, Indiana owned the Studebaker Automobile Company and were known for their innovative automobiles.

The South Bend Watch was very popular and considered a higher end offering in the day. A large collector market has developed for these fine pocket watches as with their automobiles.

The raised gold design is set against a beautiful iridescent background (I tired to capture in the images) making for a truly stunning timepiece. I so hope the pictures help tell the story of this truly fine South Bend Pocket Watch. 

This all-original South Bend Pocket Watch is faced with a beautiful Art Deco motif dial in pristine condition. We have the stylized Arabic numerals with the ornate Art Deco design in the raised gold finish. The raised gold Deco motif is set against a gold iridescent background, a stunning timepiece. These beautiful dials are rare being made of different metals they would tend to oxidize; this has been very well maintained. This fine dial is highlighted with the beautiful and ornate gold hands referred to as the Open Diamond Crossbar design. This South Bend Pocket Watch does come with an original South Bend box as shown. I am not sure if this is the original information card/box, at some point the jewel count was crossed out on the card, everything else is correct. The box and information card are period correct for this timepiece. The condition also suggest this pocket watch has spent most of it’s life boxed. This South Bend Pocket Watch shows beautifully and is sure to be appreciated for generations to come.
