This is a beautiful mid 19th century quarter repeating lever pocket watch made by McCabe. It features a gold dial and is housed in an 18 carat gold open face case with an engine turned design. The watch has a gilt three quarter plate keywind movement with a fusee and chain mechanism, along with Harrison's maintaining power. The movement is adorned with blue steel accents, including the barrel setup on the top plate and the balance spring. The escapement is an English table roller lever escapement.

One of the standout features of this watch is its quarter repeater function, which chimes the time on two polished steel gongs. The repeater can be activated by sliding a gold slide on the ribbed middle of the case.

The gold engine turned dial is elegantly designed and features Roman numerals and a subsidiary seconds dial. The hands are made of blue steel, adding a touch of sophistication to the overall look of the watch.

The watch is in excellent condition and is a testament to the craftsmanship of McCabe. The gold cuvette is signed and numbered, with the maker's mark "WR" and "IMC" present. This pocket watch is a stunning timepiece that combines both beauty and functionality.
