    This is a very unusual, but, in my opinion genuine Jacot watch. It is different from their usual but they were inventive. This is set upi in an unusual manner but still using the method of the patent .

    These have significant value over gold but not having seen one like this I can not put an accurate value on it but in good shape small ones in gold bring about $1000 and large ones in the $2000 range.

    The hands in two colors are signature feature and are there. The bow crystal and key are easy for almost any watchmaker who does old watches. If you are going to keep it these should be replaced but doing this for sale this is, at best, a wash.

    Hans Weil's Article in reference in the Jacot, Saltzman, and Nicoud thread identifies this watch as being made under the design patent of Gerard US D6097 where the D means it is a design patent. The design includes many features of Jacot's patents and Gerard and Jacot were listed as business partners in the 1870's.

    The patent claim on this watch is interesting because Jacot's patent of 1867 was for improved stem winding, absent from this watch. Gerard's patent was also registered in 1867 and matches this watch, but this patent does not have Jacot's name on it.
