A fine, rare Glashuette hunting case pocket watch Case: 14k rose gold. Dial: gilt. Movm.: bridge movement, gold screw compensation balance.
Around 1909 the Swiss Union Horlogère with its main brand Alpina founded the "Präcisions-Uhrenfabrik Alpina Glashütte G.m.b.H." in Glashütte. From 1912 on the company produced precision pocket watches with Swiss Alpina ebauches and signed them "Präcisions-Uhrenfabrik Alpina Glashütte i/S". The movements were finished with the usual Glashütte parts that identified them as products from Glashütte and set them apart from similar Swiss Alpina timepieces; the watches were fitted with engraved balance cocks with index spring fine adjusting system, Glashütte lever escapement, gold escapement wheel, gold screw compensation balance, and had the signature "Glashütte" on the barrel bridge.
