A stunning investment object direct from a private London collection comes your way in the shape of this super rare, London hallmarked 1/4 repeating pocket watch made in 1750.
An undamaged repousse 22ct gold outer hinged case protects the interior and the verge escapement movement which is ticking away nicely and keeping very reasonable time indeed.
The 1/4 repeater (hours and quarters chime) feature works by pushing down on the crown and the function is working 100% correctly at all hours and quarters.
Under the steel inner protection case there is the letter P for London 1750.
Diameter is approximately 45mm and there is an old cut diamond set into the case that is used as a push button to open the case.
This watch was made by the highly reputable and listed London watchmaker John Archambo who worked in the City between 1720 and 1750 making musical watches and clocks.
This watch would have been one of the last that he made, all by hand…
Enamel dial with no damage, key, and insurance valuation documents supplied for £10,000.00
Personal viewing welcome. 6 months warranty supplied.
This is a perfect example of a much sort after investment watch.
Condition is absolutely amazing with no issues, with only minor rubbing to the gold repousse.
