Can the forum indicate the worth, ballpark figure, of a full hunter gold seven and half minute fusee repeater? Also, is seven and half minute fusee repeater worth more than fusee minute repeater?

Pictures would be most helpful. A minute repeater is generally worth more, but quality, brand and condition are big factors. There are 7 1/2 minute repeaters and half-quarter repeaters, both chime the same intervals, but with different chimes. If yours is a fusee, it is more likely a half-quarter repeater. The difference is that the half-quarter repeater chimes the hours, then the quarters and then, if in the second half of the quarter it adds one additional ding. The 7 1/2 minute repeater chimes the hours with a low tone and then the 1/8th hours with single dings, like a 5 minute repeater.
I think half-quarter KWKS repeaters are undervalued and they are far less than a minute repeater even though they are more rare. Few verge fusee full hunter repeaters were made compared to open face verge fusees, so a good half-quarter one in full working condition with no particular brand and no other unusual features would be in the $1.8K to $2.8K range. The same watch, confirmed to be made by A. L. Breguet might be worth $35K or more. Add pictures of the watch, including the movement.
