This pocket chronometer will be part of my story on Barraud and Lunds. It is interesting that it is signed Wine Office Court. The friend I purchased it from was convinced that it had been made for or by Francis Gabriel Barraud. It is easy to be confused about the early Barraud watches because none of them were members of the Clockmakers Company before 1896. Was it legal to sign your name to a watch if you had premises in the City of London and were not a member of the appropriate guild? Francis Gabriel was 63 years old when this watch was made and Paul Philip was 43. I actually think the watch was most likely made by Earnshaw but I do not have detailed pictures between the plates.
