    Rare 19c Square Aesthetic Gun Metal Blue Steel Case Quarter Repeat Pocket Watch
    These Japonesque Gun Metal cased watches are pretty rare and very attractive examples of the Aesthetic Movement. This one is of fairly standard pocket watch size at 54 m square approx. The case has a nice patina and very slight wear as shown but this has not taken away the detail of the Japanese hieroglyphics which decorate it. Inside is a high grade Swiss Lever movement which although of a low jewel nature, is extremely well made and clean. Despite this it does occasionally stop though. Don’t know the reason. As soon as one twists the watch in ones hand to set the balance wheel moving it ticks away merrily again with good balance amplitude. The pin hand set works perfectly as does the button at the bottom of the case which opens the back. Because the back is top hinged the watch will stand up as a bed side clock. Tiny flake of enamel is missing at the edge of the dial as shown but it is hidden beneath the bezel. Repeat strike works perfectly although first three hour strikes did seem to be a bit of a dull thud compared to the beautiful notes otherwise struck! Now though, even that mild fault seems to have disappeared. All in all, a lovely old watch circa 1880 to 1890 I would guess of rare form and very collectible as well as still being useable also.
