Minute Repeating Grande Sonnerie Clockwatch
Fine and rare Swiss 18K gold minute repeating grande sonnerie clockwatch
circa 1900. Heavy plain polish case with button in the band to activate the
clockwatch. Lever at the bezel to turn the strike on and off.
White enamel dial with blued steel hands. High grade nickel two train tandem
wind 28 jewel movement jeweled to the hammers and the center. In particularly
fine condition throughout.
With the selection lever in the strike position this watch
automatically chimes the hours and quarters every 15 minutes. This means that
1:15 has a different chime than 2:15. When the button in the band is depressed,
this watch chimes the hours, quarters, and minutes with a clear bright chime. Excellent example.
Diameter 56 mm
NOTE: The small circles or shadows in some of our photos
are reflections of the camera lens. Since this watch is much smaller than in the
enlarged photos, a tiny blemish or imperfection that you could not see when looking
at the actual watch can appear very large in the photos.
