MOVEMENT : The cylinder movement is signed (Mucharsie, LONDON) and numbered (530). Beautifully engraved balance cock with diamond endstone. This movement is in good condition, is very clean and is protected by a removable brass dustcap which is also signed and numbered as the movement. It is running well to within a minute per hour.
DIAL : The white enamel dial is about 46.5mm in diameter and is in good condition with a few surface scratches, one deeper scratch across the 6 and 7 numerals, and a couple of tiny edge chips at 7 o’clock.
CASE : Fully hallmarked on both covers for London, 1809, maker FB. The hinges and catches are fine and the covers snap shut nicely. The high dome crystal is also in fine condition. The silver is in good condition with no significant dents or repairs and just some light scratches on the back and some tiny dents on the front of the bezel. The pendant has a nice feature of a split button where one side releases the front bezel and the other side releases the back cover.
