1 of 5 differant pocket watch REPEATERS ....I have in auction today .
This one is in old plated HUNTER case... crown wind ...the repeater part is the type you GENTLY pull with your finger nail at the side of the case.. it goes back in automatically and the hammers strike the inside bells.
So the hunter case.. well the gold plating is quite abit scuffed on this one.. and the top case hinge has been strained at some time in its life.. it gappes at the sides..it snaps and stays shut but gappes too.
Lightly depress the crown and the front case opens to see the white enamel dial behind the glass... ..the underside of the case is tarnished.. and says about it only being warranted 20 years to wear.
The enamel dial has a small chip right on the edge under the frame ..you can just see it under the glass at XII position... roman numerals and blued hands ..seconds dial too.
Whilst this front case is open.. see the tiny little lever on the edge of the case at the IIII position... this gently pulls out with your finger nail so you can CHANGE the time of the hands.
Going to the back case... sharp knife pop it open... see the inner dust cover is tarnished.. pop this open .. and see once again a really FABULOUS swiss repeater movement.. this one says BREVET and a SWISS CROSS and a number under the balance wheel....two steel hammers.. ..LIGHTLY pull the side action and see the hammers strike the circular bell bars.. a nice HOUR ring and then the QUARTERS is done by both hammers.. ting ding - ting ding - ting ding ..as the first one is abit tinny in sound.
As far as I can see this movement quarter repeater works fine. ..the case lets this one down abit...in working condition.
The watch case is 52mm dia x just over 7cm long to the suspension loop x 15mm deep and it weighs approx.... 107grams.
My starting price may seem alot to some buyers .......but as we all know these can be rather expensive even in various cases.
Please see close up pictures for more detail.
The item(s) are shown next to an English 1 penny which is 20mm dia for scale.
Conversion ... approx... 2.5cm = 25mm = 1 inch
