The MAKE OFFER function is available on the watch, please use it. This is a stunning Black Coloured Porcelain Dial WW1 Trench watch but it is historically important due to the fantastic engraving that the watch carries… A true historical artefact. This is a very special watch indeed and was awarded to a very special guy… This watch was presented to Private HW Barker, York and Lancaster Regiment, who was awarded the DCM for repairing telephone lines under fire at the battle of Asiago. For conspicuous gallantry under intense enemy barrage while working continuously on a main telephone line which had been cut to pieces. The two men assisting him were killed one after the other, but Private Barker stuck to his job and put the line through alone. Upon his return he immediately volunteered to go out through a barrage and mend another line, though he had nothing to eat for 15 hours. His absolute disregard of danger and his devotion to duty were magnificent. The hands are awesome which with the numerals carry some of the original luminous paint. The dial is beautifully black and in great shape. The crown is the original Pumpkin crown. The movement which is running well and keeping time is unsigned, however is a Fontainmelon movement. Is it wearable, oh YES this is a watch made for wearing and will catch the eye of many as your arm rests on the bar of your local pub.

A super rare lot, of one only 31 DSM’s given in WWI to US Navy personnel by the US Army This lot comes from the estate group of Captain Asher Carter Baker, USNA 1871 class, served his time, retired and acted as executive of the 1900 Paris Expo, 1915 Panama Pacific Expo and the Sesquicentenniel Expo, during which he died (1926). He was then called out of retirement for WWI due to his expertise with organization and transport matters, which is what his job had been with the Expositions. Baker got the first award of the Legion of Honor for the 1900 Paris Expo: this one with rosette (officer of the legion) is for his WWI service. Was later decorated with the Commander rank neck order, but only this Officer medal (with original Paris marked box and appropriate rosette, plus a rosette for the later commander award) are present in this lot. The DSM or Distinguished Service Medal rim # 439 as shown, WWI issue, fairly early #, full wrap brooch, etc. Is also for this service, which consisted of being transportation coordinator between the US Navy and the AEF, on Pershing’s Staff. See the Hall of Valor for more info on this award. He was also awarded the Navy Cross for this work, but this medal is NOT included in the lot. Medal is in NEAR PERFECT condition, light age only. The Legion has a couple enamel chips as you can see, not bad but present nonetheless. ONLY the Legion of Honor box is included in this lot.
