Introducing the Victor Kullberg London pocket watch, a rare and exquisite silver half hunter keyless lever timepiece from the 1890s. This stunning watch comes in an associated silver frame pocket watch holder to keep it safe and sound.

The perfect white enamel dial is fully signed and numbered, featuring Roman numerals, an outer minute track, and a subsidiary seconds dial, with original blued steel spade hands. The heavy silver half hunter case boasts blue enamel Arabic numerals on the outer front cover and a plain back cover, while the inner cover bears an inscription dating back to 1897. The English hallmarked case and maker's mark stamped "FT" indicate that it was made by one of the finest pocket watch case makers of the time, Fred Toms.

The keyless lever full plate movement is especially noteworthy, featuring a Tourbillion-style bridge with a diamond endstone for the compensated balance wheel. This type of layout for the movement is incredibly rare, and the ingenuity of one of the finest watchmakers of his time, Victor Kullberg.

This incredible pocket watch comes with all records of the manufacture and construction costs, obtained by kind permission from the Guildhall Museum. The Victor Kullberg London pocket watch and associated silver frame pocket watch holder are truly unique and remarkable pieces that any collector would be proud to own.
