    Verge pocket watch, silver pair cases, champleve dial – London, c1700. Peter Meyer, London, c1700. Silver pair cases, 57 mm. A large, early English verge with original champleve dial, in silver pair cases. MOVEMENT : Gilt verge movement, with finely engraved and pierced winged balance cock, showing birds and a mask at the neck. Four crested tulip pillars and silver regulator disk. In good condition and working. DIAL : Silver champleve dial, with gilt centre, in very good condition. Signed MEYER on the central disc, which also features a lion and unicorn under a crown and above a mask. INNER CASE : Silver, with no hallmarks but makers mark SB (crowned). In good condition, with just a few light bruises. The pendant has been reattached and with the bow are later replacements. The hinge and the high dome crystal are fine and the bezel snaps shut nicely. OUTER CASE : Silver pair case, with large square hinge (7 sleeves). Again with no hallmarks. The hinge, catch button and catch are fine and the case closes correctly. Some small bruises throughout. The Lion and Unicorn form the coat of arms of the British monarch (hence the crown) so this watch was probably made in London, around 1700. The makers mark on the inner case may be for Samuel Bowtell, whose marks (with and without the crown) have been seen on cases between about 1690 and 1710.
