MOVEMENT : Nicely gilded movement with beautifully engraved balance cock. The movement is signed and numbered (3896). The movement is in good condition, with the gilding still bright and is running well.
DIAL : The large white enamel dial is 44 mm in diameter and in excellent condition with no damage or repairs.
Matching brass hands.
INNER CASE : Good condition with just some loss to the gilding on the bow and pendant. Maker’s mark TG. The hinge is fine, though the case doesn’t snap shut. Nice high dome bull’s eye crystal in excellent condition.
OUTER CASE : Again in excellent condition with even wear to the gilding on the back. The hinge, catch and release button are fine and the case snaps shut nicely. Same maker’s mark as the inner.
