Chinese market antique extra thin pocket watch Fleurier 1800s unusual movement
Rare unsigned cylinder escapement caliber in early Lepine style with artisanally hand-engraved ornate full plate movement. Original solid silver case is Neuchatel made (JDB maker stamp is common for Bovet, Juvet and other Fleurier-style watches exported to the Chinese market) with Neuchatel chevron hallmark accompanying'argent' inscription. While most Chinese market watches of 1800s were thick, this one is unregulary flat in its 6.5 mm height case (not including crystal) forming a modestly elegant appearance. Common'Chinese' style pocket watch measures 17 mm thick without crystal. Not working, requires service; issue with mainspring. Balance spins alright, main train alright - running while pressure applied. Fine original dial without cracks. Fine original glass crystal without visible imperfections.
