    Superb 1818 silver fusee rack-lever pair-case pocket watch in V. G. Ticking order
    Made by Anthony Heckle of Liverpool in 1818 and hall-marked as such in Chester with the capital letter “A”… The plates are mercury fire gilded with a depth and brightness rarely seen and after 200 years are as bright as the day they were gilded. This process was banned years later after many workers died from mercury poisoning. The rack-lever movement confounded most experts who thought this frictional escapement could not possibly work well, never-the less they were proved wrong and the rack-lever enjoyed great success. A scarce rack-lever movement in wonderful ticking order and keeping decent time. Balance runs true with an “old cut” diamond end-stone and swings beautifully with a strong healthy tick. Huge 30 tooth escape wheel. Smooth winding with the chain safety stop work kicking in as it should. Flat three arm polished steel balance wheel. Matching hall-marks of course.. I can’t even find a minor dent on either case part. Inner case bezel shuts tight… Outer case bezel snaps shut and holds well but is a bit gappy.. Closing spring catch could have been riveted a little bit deeper into the case to draw the lid in a bit tighter. Some faded initials on the back. Nice clear bulls-eye crystal. A few minor scratch marks. Outer case is 51 m. In diameter excluding pendant and bow. Whole watch weighs in at a hefty 177 grams. Comes with the original key that I had with the watch 20 years ago. It’s a bit stretched so I’ll also include a modern key for winding to be on the safe side, don’t want the key slipping… Original key is fine for setting the hands. Please study the photographs as they are integral to the cosmetic condition of my items. I will only pay the return costs on mis-described items. I can post to the U.
