    Yes.


    It is 1840-1850 vintage upper mid grade. Nice case with a brass inner cover. Hands are mismatched. Very fine engine turned dial and applied gold numbers.

    No mention of a credible Ed. Dubois in Pritchard so it was likely small etabisseur or broker. Made for the US market, possibly on a Vacheron and onstantin ebauche (rough movement).

    The case is very thin and soft the inner case says K18 but I do not see a hallmark it has what looks to be a very small feather so is it possible it is gold or something else. The watch runs very well is it worth restoring ?

    Dubois Edouard born in LeLocle in 1823 watchmaker since 1855. this watch should have been built before 1852. on this date the Neuchatel hallmark was established for gold only chevron, for silver always the chevron but larger and the word Argent (silver) at the bottom.
    regards enrico
