Wonderful French ‘oignon’ verge, with fine gilt and enamel dial.
MOVEMENT : Fully signed (Guillaume et Isidore Champion A Paris). Beautiful gilt movement in clean and original condition. Running well.
DIAL : 48 mm. Gilt and enamel. Fine condition, with just a few hairlines in some of the enamel minute plaques (some of these have also been reglued in) and also hairlines within the inner enamel chapter ring. Later fancy gilt hands.
CASE : 57.5 mm. Gilt on brass. Beautifully embossed on the back and bezel. The gilding is still intact on the inside but worn on the outer surfaces. The hinges and high dome crystal are fine. The bezel does close against the case, but doesn’t snap shut. Both bow and stem appear to be original.
