An early silver pair cased pocket watch with a lovely decorative square pillar verge movement signed’JL Wynne, ALRESFORD No291′ , dating to circa 1800, in good general condition and working order, although does seem to stop on occasion, so would benefit from a service. John Lawrence Wynne is listed as working in Alresford Hants. The inner and outer silver cases are in good general condition but are not original. I believe they have been made to measure for the movement at a later date. The only markings on the case are initials’MBW’ on the inner case, see photo. No hallmarks so presumably white metal not solid silver. The outer case measures 50mm diameter and the inner case 41mm diameter. The bulls-eye glass crystal is in good condition. The convex enamel dial has a little damage, refer to photos. The beetle and poker hands are in good condition. The decorative fusee movement has a verge escapement, with a pierced and engraved balance cock, square baluster pillars and includes a calendar function (see photo with dial removed). The movement catch spring has a lovely scroll decorative finish to the end. The movement is in working order, the calendar function is in working order, it appears to keep reasonable time, although does stop on occasion so would benefit from a service. The movement is signed’J. L Wynne, ALRESFORD’ and numbered’291′. The movement is key wind and set which work fine, modern key included.
