The case has lovely decorative engraving and a central shield shaped cartouche to the rear NOT ENGRAVED which is very rare as most examples of this type of pocket watch bear personalisation.
The front of the case in unusual, it features the hours markers in Roman numerals (in black) against a gold coloured dial, beautifully engraved with decorative roses. There is some slight loss to the colour of the hour markers of the enamel as can be seen in the photo, consistent with this being a fully original piece.The inner cuvette engraved "John Bennett, 65 & 64 Cheapside, London - maker to the Royal Observatory". The very good quality, Swiss made movement is in good condition and working order, ticks away nicely, we do not test for precise timekeeping as this is an antique watch after all. There seems to be a screw missing, in our opinion this is the only imperfection present in this historic timepiece. We could easily replace it, but we prefer to sell our items in original conditions. Overall a lovely example in excellent condition and ticking away beautifully. This item can be viewed in our shop in Bournemouth, 408 wimborne road, Bournemouth, BH9 2HB.
