Product Description

Murphy’s law
For some strange reason the numbering of this watch is downright chaotic. The movement bears the number 11551; the inside of the inner lid is inscribed with 10951 while its outside bears the number 10551. The two outer covers are inscribed with 10951.
The extract from the archives states that the movement was sold on October 1st, 1877, presumably to the Albertverein – the entry is somewhat difficult to read. The Albertverein was a ladies society established in 1867 in Dresden as a branch of the Red Cross. The charity was initiated by Princess Carola of Saxony, who named it in honour of her husband Prince Albert. Its purpose was the care of those wounded in the war in support of the military medical service. In peacetime the society concentrated on the training of nurses, the so-called "Albertinerinnen", and prepare them for missions in wartime; During peacetime the Albertverein also devoted itself to caring for the poor.
