This is a stunning example of an early 18th Century English verge watch with a deep full plate fire gilt movement and Egyptian pillars. The fusee and chain are set up with a worm and wheel barrel between the plates. The winged cock with mask and pierced and engraved foot are beautifully executed, and the plain steel balance and silver regulator disc add to the precision of the watch. The white enamel dial features Roman and Arabic numerals, blue steel beetle and poker hands, and the gold pair cases were purpose made with an unusual hinge on the inner. The bezel also stands out, featuring only one central lug. The pendant and bow are made of gold, adding to the elegance of the watch. The watch is signed by Roger Case and dates back to around 1710. This vintage watch has a diameter of 56mm and a depth of 19mm, making it an exquisite timepiece worth owning.
