Notes

Inside the case-back, a label inscribed “W. J Baird / No. 88” (probably coming from the collection of the watch store founded in London in the early 19th century). 
The Extract from the Archives, dated September 2019, mentioned that this watch was delivered on January 25, 1896, to the Longines agent, Maison Mauer, in Spain.
