A late 18th-century quarter-repeating pocket watch with chain fusee movement:
This timepiece features a "bell-striking repeater," a type that strikes the case's internal "bell" instead of the more common "wire gong" type seen in later years. One notable characteristic is the clear and resonant sound compared to the wire gong models.
The repeater is activated by pressing the pendant at the top of the watch.
The case is crafted in a champagne gold hue, and it includes a hinged dust cover.
The movement includes an intricately engraved balance cock, and the chain fusee mechanism is in excellent condition.
The original gold case has a slightly reddish tint, resembling "champagne gold," and the hour and minute hands are crafted in a matching color.
Note: Some past repairs, such as soldering, and repair marks around the keyhole on the enamel dial are visible. However, considering the watch's age of over 200 years, it is in remarkably good condition!
