French Verge Fusee Carved Pillars c1700s
Vintage from the 18th century
Style: Avant garde
Here is this mid 1700s French Continental verge fusee pocket watch. This watch runs! It isn't guaranteed, but it does run. It has beautiful pillars and plate edging.
Surprisinging, this pre American Revolutionary War watch runs pretty well. It is a key wind and key set watch!
The case diameter is 51.1mm. The case is silver. The porcelain pocket watch dial has an old repair near the keyhole, but is better than average condition. The bullseye glass crystal has very little wear, and no cracks or chips noted. The minute hand has the end missing.
