Hauchar
ELEVE DE BREGUET
a Paris
AIGUILLES
NO. 2397

The stem and back cover are stamped with French gold marks (1819-1838) and case number 25315.

KEY : Though not marked, this tests as gold. Lovely quality with ratchet action and swivel collar. Perfect condition.

CONDITION : The movement winds, sets and runs well with the jump hour mechanism working well. The dial has a few light scratches and some light staining around the edges. Would probably benefit from being professionally cleaned. The crystal is fine. The gold case has a couple of very light scratches on the back and one very small dent. The front bezel, cuvette and back cover all snap shut nicely.
