    Can anyone provide assistance with identifying a pocket watch made in Le Locle by 'H' Perrelet'?

    It is a hunter cased pocket watch, 18k gold and is deeply engraved with floral designs and enameled butterflies on both outside halves of the case which measures 42mm.

    The inside is inscribed 'H. Perellet Locle' and in flowing 1800s script, 'Detached lever 13 jewels No 27840' .

    It is also hallmarked 'LBF' on the inside of the cover and has a most unusual winding key mechanism.
    I need help with identifying who 'H. perrelet' was and when the watch was made?

    I am familiar with Abraham Loiuis and his grandson but can find no mention of "H. Perrelet" on the internet.

    Thank-you for your time.
