Description

This solid gold verge fusee pocket watch made in mid size is presented with a rare ‘Cartouche’ gold and enamel dial. Very fine engraved patterns with stripes, blocks and others. Small circles filled with white enamel and black Arabic hour indication and a white enamel band to indicate the minutes. Some small flaws to be found but overall in great shape and hard to find an example that still has all the hour indications present.
Oddly designed blued steel hour and minute hand.

The case is strong with both lids closing as they should. The inside of the case back is stamped ‘DORÉ’ meaning Gold in the French language. No dents or deep scratches.

The verge fusee movement is signed by the maker. Winds and ticks smoothly just like it should.
Comes with winding key.
