This is a large, nice quality silver repeating French pocket watch, with a verge movement.

MOVEMENT : Unsigned gilded verge movement with engraved and pierced balance cock.

Complete except for the following :

The regulator slide (beneath the balance cock) is missing.

The inner cover (curvette) is missing. The 2 small steel catches are still present on the edge of the top plate.

The balance swings ok but needs adjustment after the regulator slide has been replaced. The hour/quarter repeating function is working well.

DIAL : 50.75 mm. White enamel. Excellent condition with just a few light surface scratches Blued steel Breguet style hands.
