Cannot make out markings on the flag. The case has a screw in the pendant, a hole drilled through the case spring and a slot in the case and bezel for a lever to set the hands. The case fits an 1857 movement and the case screw lines up with the mark in the case back. This is a much earlier case converted to a stemwind lever set 1857 model. I have not seen one before as they usually recased the whole movement not using the original case and refitting it. Great for a collector with an important 1857 stemwind movement.

    Rare 1758 Verge Fusee Pair Case Pocket Watch With Small Dial by Thomas Shilling. This is another of my great antique / vintage watch auctions. This one is for an antique pair case pocket watch dating from the middle of the 18th Century. The watch is by Thomas Shilling (marked to the movement) and it is a wonderful example of a verge escapement fusee watch. The white porcelain dial has Roman numerals with outer Arabic minutes. The dial and inner case are quite small – 38mm diameter dial and 44mm inner case. The inner and outer cases are both marked hallmarked London 1758. Lifting the dial reveals the stunning verge escapement fusee movement, marked Thomas Shilling. The watch does run but it could do with a service. Cosmetically it is good for a 260 year old watch – there is however some wear as you would expect including a broken hour hand. Please see my photos for more details.

    RARE Qing Dynasty Juvet Chinese Duplex silver Dragon case pocket watch c1850. The watch has been made by Jovet Watch Co. Juvet and Bovet both was official watch makers to the Chinese Emperor’s Court. Fine enamel dial with a central seconds hand, signed with Chinese characters for Jovet. Amazing high grade Chinese Duplex style anchor escapement movement. Fire gild hand engraved and hand finished movement with blue steel screws, ruby endstone on balance, hand engraved Chinese characters for Jovet on the movement. The watch is oversize -56mm in diameter. The watch comes with a matching key. PERFECT WORKING ORDER The watch comes with a CERTIFICATE OF AUTHENTICITY! Provenance;the watch comes from the most important chinese collection of the bulgarian diplomat Mr. Ferdinandov, who was the Bulgarian ambasador in Beijing during 1960’s. He brought over 1000 Chinese watches and clocks. His collection is considered for the biggest one in the whole Eastern Europe! Clocks and watches were never devices owned by the everyday citizen of China. The Chinese had been using a public time keeping system that was based on a combination of sun dials, water clocks, and astronomical observations. While the EQUINOCTIAL SYSTEM divides a 24 hour day into 12 equal periods, with each having four quarters (thus each quarter corresponds to an half-hour in western time keeping system), this system was only used by astronomers and astrologers. Because China was an agricultural based society, the PRACTICAL Chinese hours was the TEMPORAL SYSTEM, which were based on sunrise and sunset. Both the day and the night were divided into six equal periods. This obviously made the periods unequal because of seasonal changes: As winter approaches, the “day periods” became shorter; while during the summer, they become longer. To make things even more complicated, in practical use the night was actual divided into five “special” night periods, instead of the theoretical six; and each night period was in turn divided into five “points” equally. The first Chinese watches were originally constructed by the Mandarin Jesuit missionaries for the Chinese emperors since the late Ming dynasty (late 16th century to 1644). The emperors considered the watches as both astrological toys and jewelry. In fact, horological and astronomical instruments were the items that caught the emperors’ eyes and allowed the missionaries to obtain their feet in the Chinese doo.

The Chinese were still using the temporal time system in everyday life. Even though some clever watchmakers did create watches that had an adjustable chapter to accommodate the changing time periods, the requirement of having a horologer to adjust the chapter daily rendered the adjustable watch impractical. The normal, “non-adjustable” version, continued to be only used by astrologers. Hence it was no suprise for the automaton companies that their wealthy Mandarin customers were mainly interested in Jewelry watches, or Repeaters. Save for the emperors and his court mathematicians, scientists and astronomers, no one seemed to be interested in purchasing a chronometer, a chronograph, or a calendar watch because no one would use a watch for actual timekeeping.
