Interesting and unusual highly engraved European Verge Fusee from a noted London watchmaker Franch circa 1740. This one seems to have everything original (except a minute hand missing) waiting for a proper restoration. There are no English hallmarks on this case and the movement is a French Swiss Style. This is an indication that this watch may have been an European made Verge Fusee that was made for the English market. It is also possible that Franch was the London retailer who imported this from Europe.
