New Zealand Wrist Watches – Gallery

In contrast to the fairly common practice of pocket watches having the dial inscribed with a retailer, wrist watches with a New Zealand retailer on the dial are less frequent.

The watches displayed are from the World War I period (Grieve & Tarlton) to the 1960s period, mostly.

By this stage, virtually all wrist watches then carried the watch manufacturer’s name, often details on the number of jewels, and the country from which it originated. You will notice the Lauchlans Ltd watch crosses over by stating it is a Rolex also.
