Bidders Look to Pocket Watch
A gold pocket watch, with an unusual repeat movement, is included in the Charterhouse two day May auction of watches, silver and jewellery.
“This is a very smart pocket watch and would have been used by a very smart gentleman.” Commented Richard Bromell. “Whilst many people today rely upon a wristwatch or telephone to tell the time, this pocket watch is still running well today and repeats the quarters should you need to know the approximate time in the dark!”
The 18ct gold pocket watch, being a full hunter with an enclosed case, has languished in a safe deposit box for many years. The back of the case is engraved with a crest and with the motto below “Dextra Fideque” which translates to “By my right hand and my faith”.
