A large and impressive gold cased pocket watch, with a quarter/hour repeating cylinder movement. All in particularly good condition.

MOVEMENT : Cylinder movement, incorporating an hour/quarter repeating function which is activated by pushing down the stem. The repeater strikes two gongs, with one chime for the hours and two for the quarters. The repeating function can be disabled by a slide button on the side of the case. Both movement and repeat function are running perfectly.

DIAL : Silver engine turned dial with gold Breguet type hands. Very nice condition with just a few light marks but no scratches. The mineral crystal is perfect.

CASE : The large engine turned gold case has French 18ct gold marks on the inside of the back and the stem. The gilt brass cuvette is engraved as follows :
