This French verge fusee pocket watch with date complication in terrific condition.

The white enamel dial shows minor wear (see pictures) with lovely black Arabic hour indiction and gold accents to indicate the minutes.

A very cool aspect of this watch is the fact that all three hands are present after ± 210 years.

The strong silver case is stamped with multiple French silver hallmarks. The lids close tightly.

The verge fusee movement has a hand engraved fine work balance bridge. Winds smoothly and runs down the whole fusee chain. Comes with winding key, just like all our other pocket watches.
