Pearl and Enamel Repeater
Fine and beautiful continental 18K gold, pearl and painted enamel
quarter hour repeater antique pocket watch circa 1810.
The bezels set with pearls, the back with a beautifully painted enamel
scene or a returning warrior. Matte gold dial (light scuffs) with applied gold numerals
and serpentine gold hands. Lepine caliber keywind cylinder quarter hour repeater
When the pendant is depressed this watch chimes the hours and quarters with good tone.
The dial and movement of this watch show signs or careful use, but the enamel
scene is so perfect I suspect that it has been restored, but if so, the repair is
in hard fired enamel and undetectable.
Diameter 45 mm
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.
