Lorch "Triumph" Watchmakers' Lathe

SOLD: a very rare 6 mm Lorch watchmakers lathe in its original nickel-plate finish and complete with the special maker's wall cabinet (43 x 35 x 15.5 cm) with lock and key. The lathe and accessories appear to be a version of the "Triumph" Combination V1 as shown in older Lorch catalogues. This is the standard type of Lorch watchmaker's lathe called a "right-hand" - the headstock being in the usual place on the left and not , as more usual in Germany formerly, on the right. Accessories include, amongst others:  a compound slide-rest assembly; 29 collets  0,2 / 0,3 / 0,4 / 0,5 / 0,6 /0,7 / 0,8 / 1,0 / 1,2 / 1,4 / 1,6 / 1,8 / 2,0 / 2,2 / 2,6 / 2,8 / 3,0/ 3,2 / 3,4 / 3,5 / 3,6 / 3,8 / 4,0 / 4,2 / 4,4 / 4,5 / 4,6 / 4,8 / 5,0 ; set of five ring chucks;  a box chuck; a crown chuck with the four heads (these are very rare); a separate fixed headstock;  a separate revolving headstock; another revolving headstock with the original Lorch dividing plate;  a vertical milling slide with attached high-speed, collet-holding swivelling milling/grinding spindle; an universal bezel chuck;  high speed grinding, polishing and milling accessory (Lorch Nr. 31a ) to take collets; drilling tailstock to take collets and other fittings;  lever-action drilling accessory Nr. 46;  single and double-roller filing rests; faceplate with draw-in spindle; a non-Lorch special tool/collet for opening up holes to take Jewels in a watch or clock plate (there is a special non-Lorch tool which takes up the collets - this is a beautifully-made item and perhaps a one-off, but I am not aware of its purpose). Also included are many other small accessories . This lathe is ready for use, but a collectors item.  Price £2750 GBP excluding postage.  Shipping £75 GBP within the EU or worldwide  £125 GBP.
