The case is in nice condition with good high relief of a good classical biblical subject OF KING SOLOMAN WITH THE TWO WIVES AND BABY.

The inner silver case with the watch is hallmarked LONDON 1762. Size of case is 47 m. Some small age wear to case. The weight of the watch 136 grams. All the hinges and clips work well on the cases. The Champleve dial is in first class condition. All the pips are in place. Very fine original gold hands. The glass is very high clean and clear.

Just great to have such an amazing and interesting watch that is as good as this one, and it just has every thing one could want on a fine verge watch, very hard to find a watch in this condition with all that it has going for it.
