The inside of the case has several hallmarks of English origin: GS, JW, 1011, 9 .365, GS. Original movement, "hammer" type automatic winding mechanism without winding crown (Time setting by rotating bezel). The watch is signed SELFWINDING HARWOOD WATCH Co. LTD, Fiften 15 JEWELS, TWO (2) ADJS. SWISS PATENT Nº 1576120.
Original dial, signed HARWOOD at twelve o'clock. Circular window position indicator to set time at six hour position. If the circular window shows red, the watch is ready to wear with no danger of any accidental movement of the bezel changing the time. Turning the bezel in the opposite direction to the time setting, red appears indicating that we can use it normally. Breguet-style hands with blued finish.

As seen at the pictures, the case is in very good overall aesthetic condition.
