***COLUMBUS KING 23j Marked DSD Salesman’s Display C: 1904. Very rare. 1874 – 1903. This company went into receivership in 1894 with new management. That same year Fredrick Gruen started again as D. Gruen & Son. They had PAUL ASSMANN to produce 18 size and 16 size movements with 18 and 21 jewels with the escapement designed by Moritz Grossman of Glassshute From 1894 – Feb 1903, the Columbus W.Co. produced watches both under the Columbus W.Co. and the New Columbus W.Co. name. The re-organized company produced the same modes, but switched primarily to named grades such as Time King, Columbus King, etc. The higher grades were assigned a special block of serial numbers from 500,00 to 506,000. In 1903 the Columbus Watch Co. was sold to the Studebaker and the South Bend Watch Co. started. Currently, this rare model has a $3000.00 value in mint condition. Especially collectible with the original matching signature dial! Clean, running and still very accurate. THIS IS A FINE COLLECTIBLE. DON'T INVEST IN THE STOCK MARKET. BUY SOMETHING PROVEN IN TIME.
DIAL: Original Double sunken white porcelain dial signed “Columbus King”, and “23 Jewels” in Gothic Logo font style. Short hairline at 1 edge and just below the sub. Seconds circle, both of which, does not distract.
MOVEMENT: Full plate nickel, open face, lever set, “ADJUSTED”, “Columbus King”, “23 Jewels”, #503,261. Prestine original condition with the signature matching the dial.
CASE: Snap back and bezel nickel with beveled glass on both sides for easy and clear viewing of this rare watch.
