Manual winding - Yellow gold - Sleutel

Type: Pocket watch
Movement: Manual winding
Gender: Men
Case material: Yellow gold
Model: Hoge kwaliteit
Period: 1850-1900
Material fineness: 18 ct gold

An 18 kt yellow gold men's pocket watch. The pocket watch is in very good condition.

The white enamel dial has minuscule hairline cracks, nearly invisible.
The case has a special design in which the front and back lid form some kind of 'edge', creating three bands together with the body of the case. (See the photos.)
The case is heavy and firm.

The gold weight is 29.1 grams of 18 kt gold! (Without movement, glass and metal inner ring.)
The scrap value of this is over €750!

The inner lid is also made in solid gold and is beautifully engraved as well.

The high-quality anchor escapement movement runs well with a beautiful tick.
Nicely jewelled with 10 light red rubies.

The year is unknown as these French pocket watches often were not marked in view of the taxes for the use of precious metals.
I estimate the year of manufacture to be around 1880.

Maker: anonymous.
Material: 18 kt gold.
Diameter without pendant: 47 mm.
Diameter with pendant: 58 mm.
Total weight: 68.4 grams.
Made in: France.

The pocket watch will be very well-packaged in bubble wrap in a sturdy box.
Will be sent worldwide, by registered and insured post.
Naturally, the watch could also be picked up!
