Good morning all.
I recently purchased a:
8 Day. Cecil Roy. 59 South Audley St. W.
This at an auction south of the river in london last week. The auction description as follows:
"A goliath travel watch and silver case, English early 20th century".

I think you will agree a most interesting timepiece!
8 Days "to boot!"
Any ideas of history, date etc?
Look forward to any responses.
"So mote it be!"

My guess is that Cecil Roy was a retailer.
Most of the Goliath watches I have seen and owned were either French or Swiss. I owned one that was made by Omega and another that was stamped on the movement made in France
