MOVEMENT : Very clean, almost mint, gilded movement, with blued screws and stop lever on the side of the case. Particularly finy pierced balance cock. The movement is running well. It is fully signed and numbered (8237).
DIAL : The large white enamel dial, with subsidiary seconds dial, is about 46.5 mm in diameter. No repairs but 3 hairlines and a shallow chip at 6 o’clock. The gold edge to the seconds dial has been rubbed on the right hand side. Blued steel hands.
INNER CASE : Hallmarks for Birmingham 1813, maker’s mark JM. The case is in very good condition and snaps shut nicely. The high dome bull’s eye crystal has a few light scratches but no chips or cracks. The bow and pendant are fine without the usual repaired join to the case. The silver is in very good condition with no significant scratches or dents.
OUTER CASE : A heavy case, with matching hallmarks to the inner and again in fine condition. The hinge and catch are good and the case snaps shut properly.
