I acquired this watch yesterday, and am interested in learning more about it.
Thanks,
Brian

Very nice item. It looks to be a verge escapement so it is early 19th century, likely Swiss. The dial is probably hand engine turned and itself a fine piece of work.

I do not see any repeat work but it may be under the dial but it is unusual not for it to be visible from the back.

YOU might get more information from the complicated watches section.

Hi Brian,

Yes, all that's visible is the repeater spring barrel bridge and the strike speed regulator. The dial and hands are very elegant.

Regards,

Graham
