Hi All, I'd like to share a few pictures of my Ball BRT, 21J, SN# 42622 which is triple signed. Hopefully someone on this page can tell me if they have ever seen a case like this?

I was wondering how many of these cases may exist. The dial is signed 'BRT' and is mint, the movement is engraved 'BRT 21jewels' and the case (made by Wadsworth) back has solid 18k raised BRT letters in yellow, white, rose and green 18k solid gold.

I purchased this watch from the original owner's son who is now 81 years old (yes the son is 81). His father owned this 21j BRT as well as a 19j and 17j BRT. His son (81yrs old) has many hi-end watches and never liked to let this case go when the movement was being serviced and he frequently put another movement in this case whenever the Ball 21j BRT was being serviced which created one extra set of case marks. He has all the written documentation for servicing over the past 100 years showing the movement serial numbers and case number together which I hope to obtain soon but I do not have yet.

Enjoy the pictures!
Joe

Very nice pocket watch

Very nice watch and really nice that you have the historical information like that. I have not seen such a case before but I have most enjoyed seeing your watch and the BRT dial. Don't see many of the brotherhood watches, they are a treat to see.

Best of all,
Lance
