    Rare Pair Cased Sterling Silver Fusee Cylinder Pocket Watch Fra. Perrigal 1804
    A very interesting and most important silver case watch. SIGNED FRANCIS PERIGAL LONDON (UK) C1804. PLEASE DO TAKE TIME TO READ THE FULL LISTING AND DO ENLARGE THE PHOTOGRAPHS TO GET A BETTER LOOK. The size of the outer silver case is 45 m. And is in very good condition, with a very nice clean watchmakers paper so nice to have and rounds this fine watch off. The size of the case with then watch is 43 m. Both cases are well hallmarked London 1804. All the hinges work well on the cases. Very nice gold hands. The glass is very high bull nose clean and clear. The fire gilt movement looks just like the day it left the work shop. The watch runs well C + or 2- 3 minutes per hour. With a very very fine engraved back plate with a decorated and engraved balance cock and a silver Tompion regulator. Highly unusual original English bridge type balance clock. A scintillating feature if this watch is that it demonstrates a cylinder escapement of the highest quality and its unusually made of steel rather than typical brass which was commonly used in this period. According to a late 19th century pamphlet; the cylinder steel escape wheel would have taken a highly skilled watch maker one day and a half to produce and another day to finish. Signed on the back plate FRANCIS PERRIGAL The watch will come with a key. PERRIGAL IS A WELL LISTED MAKER. WATCH WILL COME WITH A KEY AND HAS A NICE WATCH PAPER TO ROUND IT ALL OFF. 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. This watch is so very well priced, and well presented. An absolute must for any serious collector or would make a wonderful present. I endeavour to find both quality and unusual pieces and describe and photograph them as accurately as possible. Thank you kindly for your custom.

    English Verge Fusee Pocket Watch Pre 1700 Pair Case with Original Silver Dial
    English Verge Fusee Pre 1700 Pair Case with Original Silver Dial Gents Pocket Watch England; G. Baker; Mans; Circa: 1695 COMPLICATIONS: Early verge. CASE: The sterling silver 20-size, 57mm plain pare case features an open face. DIAL: This silver dial displays Roman numerals, poker hands, and is signed London. MOVT: This key-set movement with verge/fusee escapement, is gilt, with a full plate layout, and is signed. CONDITION: C 3 (Case is in Very Good Condition) D 3 (Dial is in Very Good Condition) M 3 (Movement is in Very Good Condition) R 8.5 (Rarity on a scale of #1 being very common to #10 being extremely rare) Experts Opinion: A true Onyion verge pair case. The original dial gives this watch a special edge. Pair Case Higher end early verge fusee watches were often in a pair case. Pair case refers to when a pocket watch is placed within another case (nesting), therefore two cases. The outter protective case is often very decorative. There are also watches, such as those made for the Turkish Market, that had up to four cases, each nesting perfectly within each other and keeping the inner watch safe from damage. Key-wind/Key-set Movements The very first pocket watches up until the third quarter of the 19th century had key-wind and key-set movements. A watch key was necessary to wind the watch and to set the time. This was usually done by opening the case back and putting the key over the winding-arbor (which was set over the watch’s winding-wheel, to wind the mainspring) or by putting the key onto the setting-arbor, which was connected with the minute-wheel and turned the hands. Some watches of this period had the setting-arbor at the front of the watch, so that removing the crystal and bezel was necessary to set the time. Verge Fusee Escapement Used in antique spring-powered mechanical watches and clocks, a fusee is a cone-shaped pulley with a helical groove around it, wound with a cord or chain which is attached to the mainspring barrel. Fusees were used from the 15th century to the early 20th century to improve timekeeping by equalizing the uneven pull of the mainspring as it ran down. The mainspring is coiled around a stationary axle (arbor), inside a cylindrical box, the barrel. The force of the spring turns the barrel.

    1890 RARE PAIR CASED / ONLY 69000 MADE ELGIN G M WHEELER SILVER 18S POCKET WATCH. Ll be honest, its the first time I have ever seen an Elgin pair case pocket watch, even rarer with the large gold image of a horse & jockey on the back!!!! 1890, G M Wheeler, Grade 44, Model 5, Class 9, 18S, either 15J or 17J, stem set with date serial number 3506121. Research revealed that a total of only 69,000 were produced of this model during 1890 making it quite rare, even rare being pair cased. Working, ticking strongly and was tested over a 19 hour period and kept near perfect time, maybe lost 10 to 20 seconds. May need a service though as when winding, the winder pulled out of the stem. The outer Fays Senior Coin (silver). Case is 58.4mm in diameter with serial number U3076. The inner case is 50.2mm in diameter, same serial number U3076 but is not stamped silver. Dial has a few cracks, glass has wear, unsure if the horse and jockey are gold or gold plated. Local Brisbane pick-up welcomed.

Their lower production quantities and of course their high grade movements make them also a great gift or investment. A typical railroad’s requirements for a pocket watch in the early 20th century might include. Only American-made watches may be used (depending on availability of spare parts). Only open-faced dials, with the stem at 12 o. Minimum of 17 functional jewels in the movement. Size 16 or 18 only. Maximum variation of 30 seconds (approximately 4 seconds daily) per weekly check. Watch adjusted to at least five positions: Face up and face down (the positions a watch might commonly take when laid on a flat surface); then crown up, crown pointing left, and crown pointing right (the positions a watch might commonly take in a pocket). Occasionally a sixth position, crown pointing down, would be included. Adjusted for severe temperature variance and isochronism (variance in spring tension). Indication of time with bold legible Arabic numerals, outer minute division, second dial, heavy hands. Lever used to set the time (no risk of inadvertently setting the watch to an erroneous time, when winding the watch with the stem). Anti-magnetic protection (after the advent of diesel-electric locomotives). The minimum requirements were raised several times as watch-making technology progressed, and the watch companies produced newer, even more reliable models. By WW2, many railroads required watches that were of a much higher grade (as many as 23 jewels, for example) than those made to comply with the original 1891 standard. _gsrx_vers_827 GS 7.0.13 (827).
