Description

Extravagant execution, we haven’t seen a model like this before with on both sides 95 pearls, a total of 190 natural pearls from 1800s.
As you can see on the pictures, on both the front and back of the case there is a red ruby at the top.

The white enamel dial has black Arabic hour indication, no hairlines or cracks.

The yellow gold case has a coin edge onlay which is clearly visible meaning this watch has not been worn much in the past two centuries. The hour hand seems to be replaced at some point.

The tiny verge fusee movement has a hand cut balance bridge and is stamped with the same number as the case; 35559.
Running smoothly with a solid tick. Please note that these movements are not as accurate as modern mechanical time pieces.

The chain is gold plated and originates from the 1900s.
