Here is a description of a stunning 18K rose gold pocket watch, made by Peter Desmarais in London around 1803. The watch features a beautiful original white enamel dial with offset Roman numeral hour markers, a black outer minute track, and 1/5 second divisions. The gold hands are original, including the center second hand. The watch has an 18ct rose gold pair case with polished inner and outer cases, hallmarked for London in 1803. The case maker is stamped IW.

Inside, the gilt full plate cylinder escapement, pierced and engraved balance cock, and silver regulation dial with an original dust cover are all fully signed and numbered. The watch also has an early stop mechanism, commonly known as a doctor's watch.

Peter Desmarais was a London watchmaker who worked from 1794 to the early 19th century. The location of his workshop was St Martins Court, which is today known as Leicester Square. This pocket watch is a wonderful example of early 19th century English watchmaking, and it has remained in pristine condition over the years.
