This remarkable piece has been part of my private collection for 30 years and can now be purchased. It is an exceptionally decorative pocket watch. It can decorate your personal desktop and take you back to the good old times of our grandfathers every time you look at it. The quadrangle case has rounded corners and is made of dark iron – a very rare and attractive material that is cherished by collectors and it underlines the exceptionally attractive white enamel face. The Arabic numbers in shining enamelled cartouches are surrounded by golden minute dots. The inner circle consisting of 10 golden stars and original Louis XV hands complete the perfect appearance of the face. At the position of the number 6 there is a separate small dial of seconds. The back case can be opened and can be used as a support for the watch to stand. The quality full anchor movement has 15 rubies and a Brequet mechanism. Both underlines the quality of the clock work.

Worth pointing out are the anchor and anchor wheel since they are made of brass which is especially rare. The unique travel pocket watch has a winder at the top and a button to move the hands which is typical for the time the watch was made. It is located at the number 11. The movement has been completely restored by our professional and experienced watchmaker – as have all watches of our collection.

This watch is an especially fascinating piece. It will most certainly make its new owner feel proud as it did for many years being mine as an eye-catcher in the collector’s cabinet. However, it could also be worn by a gentleman with high demands of quality and a great love for the extraordinary.

We will provide a certificate with this collector’s item.
