This is an exquisite Volta pocket watch from the 1880s that boasts of an 18ct rose gold minute repeater calendar chronograph full hunter keyless lever. The white enamel dial features Arabic numerals and an outer minute track for the chronograph hand, complemented by Fleur des Lis hands. The dial has apertures for the Day Month and Lunar Cycle and sub dials for the date and seconds hand. The full hunter case is Swiss hallmarked and boasts of engine turned engraving, a vacant cartouche, and a repeater button at six and a chronograph button at two. The inner cuvette is also signed Volta and has a detailed description of the movement that won several medals of Honor in Paris, Chicago, and Milan. The fully jeweled keyless lever movement has the chronograph workings on the back plate, with hammers visibly chiming the Hours Quarters and Minutes. Interestingly, the Day and Month are written in Portuguese, suggesting that the watch was intended for the Brazilian Market.
