Perpetual Calendar Repeater
Fine French 18K pink gold perpetual calendar quarter hour repeater antique pocket
watch attributed to Poitevin, circa 1880.
Fine white enamel dial (clean hairlines) with gold and black hands and indications for
day, date, and month and aperture for phases of the moon.
Substantial plain polish hunting case with slide in the band to activate the repeater.
Frosted gilt 23 jewel movement.
Unlike simple calendar watches, this mechanism "knows" the number of days in
each month and also accounts for leap year. When activated, this watch chimes
the time using different chime tones to designate the hours and quarter hours
with loud clear tones.
Diameter 53 mm
|| Very Good - Excellent
NOTE: The small circles or shadows in some of our photos
are reflections of the camera lens. Since this watch is much smaller than in the
enlarged photos, a tiny blemish or imperfection that you could not see when looking
at the actual watch can appear very large in the photos.
