MOVEMENT : Signed and numbered (9800). Gilded verge movement with engraved and pierced balance cock. All in good original condition and running well.
DIAL : 45.5 mm, white enamel. Perfect condition except for one small chip, right on the edge at 12 (hidden by the bezel).
INNER CASE : 49.75 mm. Silver hallmarks for London, 1826, maker BN. The hinge and catch are fine and the case snaps shut nicely. The high dome bull’s eye crystal is fine. There is some wear to the bow and a couple of light bruises to the back but in overall very nice condition.
OUTER CASE : 56 mm. Matching hallmarks to the inner. Again in very good overall condition with just a small round hole near the catch where the rivot has been replaced. The hinge, catch and catch button are fine and the case snaps shut correctly.
The outer case includes an interesting old watchpaper from the maker – J & E Mason. It is very unusual for an original paper to survive with a watch.
J & E Mason are listed in Worcester during the early 19th century.
