Fine continental 18K gold musical quarter repeater antique pocket watch circa. 1810.
Breguet style engine turned dial with black numerals and blued steel Breguet hands.
Engine turned case (2 small dings) with plunger pendant to activate the repeater
and slide in the band to play the music at will. Gilt cylinder movement with lever protruding
from the edge of the dust cover to choose to have the music play automatically on the hour.
When the pendant is depressed this watch chimes the hours on two gongs with
loud clear tones. It also plays a musical tune automatically on the hour and
also on demand.
This watch plays a sprightly musical tune with a minimum of mechanical noise.
Diameter 55 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.
