Silver Verge London Painted Dial Pocket Watch 1806
You are bidding on a wonderful silver pair cased verge pocket watch with a painted dial, made in London in 1806 and is in good condition.
Dial: The cream enamel dial has black handwritten Roman numerals with black outer minute divisions. The dial has nice golden hands. The beautifully painted dial has a nice scene of a lady in the mountains. The protective bulls-eye glass is in good condition.
Movement: The silver verge escapement movement is pierced and has a lovely engraved bridge cock. The movement has a silver disc regulator and has round cylinder shaped baluster pillars. All around the movement there are nice engravings. The watch is in working order, however we cannot guarantee accuracy for an antique pocket watch. The movement is signed: " Daniels, London, N° 3721".
Case: This verge pocket watch comes in a nice silver pair cased case with a smooth finish. The inner side of the case is hallmarked for London 1806/7. The case has the initials WL which is probably from the famous fabricant William Lewis. All the hinges clasp and the buttons are strong with both cases closing firmly.
