French Breguet style pocket watch - Details:

French pocket watch Were it not for the lack of Breguet’s signature, one would be hard pressed to distinguish this watch from those made by the famous French maker.

The gilt plated movement has a cylinder escapement, Breguet parachute shockproof device and key wind, with quarter repeating on two square section gongs operated by a push release on the pendant.

The silver engine-turned dial with black engraved Roman numerals is secured (in the manner of Breguet) with a single steel screw.

Blued steel Breguet moon hands indicate the hours and minutes while a smaller steel hand is used in the gold subsidiary seconds ring located at the six o’clock position. All this is incased in an open faced gold engine-turned case, hallmarked and numbered 3549, with inner couvette.

Circa 1810

Dimensions: 2”(6cm) diameter, 1/4”(.5cm) thick
