This exquisite timepiece is a late 18th Century cylinder watch, featuring a stunning gold and enamel open face case adorned with delicate pearls. The watch houses a rare full plate gilt keywind movement, with a resting barrel elegantly hidden under an engraved cover.
The movement showcases a recessed three-arm gilt balance, with a striking blue steel spiral hairspring under a beautifully crafted sector shaped cock. The cylinder and escape wheel are both crafted from durable steel.
The watch is wound through a fully restored white enamel dial, which bears the maker's signature and features Arabic numerals and elegant gold hands.
The small gold case of the watch is adorned with a border of split pearls, with a front bezel that can be opened by pressing a button located in the rectangular gold and enamel pendant. The back of the case is intricately set with split pearls, arranged in an exquisite geometric pattern.
To ensure its safety and preservation, the watch is accompanied by a dark green presentation case.
