MONSTER 18K SOLID GOLD Pocket Watch w/ COMPASS, Antique, NR! Click Images to Enlarge
We are having an inventory reduction sale, and will be selling a significant number of our finest watches, most all with extremely modest (e.g. less than gold value) or s. Gold is trading at near time highs, and some people may have a special interest in the gold pocket watches we have for sale, as well as silver, antique clocks, and other timepieces.SUMMARY -> AMAZING, GORGEOUS, HUGE + HEAVY, VERY RARE COLLECTIBLE!Presented here is an absolutely AMAZING, HUGE, HEAVY and VERY RARE circa 1825-1850 18K Solid Gold Swiss Pocket WATCH WITH A WORKING COMPASS ON THE DIAL, in absolutely great condition and AS PICTURED, and with a very-high quality KWKS, or keywind and keyset (sometimes called KW KS) early movement of very high quality. This pocket watch was made in Locle, Switzerland, which was the early birth place of Swiss watchmaking. It is signed by E. Robert on the cuvette, a well-known high-end name we have seen before. While it is marked as Patent Lever, if that is referring to how the time is set, either originally when it was made or sometime later it was turned into a keyset vs. lever set movement. In any even, from looking at the movement, one can see this watch oozes quality in every dimension. This extremely rare and unusual antique pocket watch would be a fantastic addition to any timepiece collection.A winding key will be included. Our best estimate is that this pocket watch was made circa 1825-1850. Not only does it have a COMPASS embedded in the dial -- and is STILL WORKING -- it also has a subsidiary seconds dial with unusual placement to the left of the compass. We will let the pictures do most of the talking. The construction of the movement is definitely Swiss and high-grade. It is in a HUGE and HEAVY SOLID 18K Gold Case, fully hallmarked, and is in overall excellent condition. The dial has hairlines as can be seen clearly in the photos, which is not unexpected of a pocket watch of this age, and one which obviously offered both utility and prestige as an item to "show off" during the era it was made -- and this would have been true on a purely utilitarian level for the next 100+ years in the life of this pocket watch. This is a very special collectible, and could be the centerpiece of a very high quality pocket watch collection, should have a proud place in any pocket watch collection. It could also have be a prized part of any unusual general antiques or timepiece collection.WE ARE OFFERING FOR SALE ON AT THE SAME TIME ANOTHER SWISS MADE POCKET WATCH OF THE SAME ERA THAT HAS A WORKING BAROMETER in the same location on the dial that the Compass is located on this pocket watch. The Pocket Watch with the barometer is in a silver case, was made and signed by G. Lannier in Geneve (Geneva). Even though this double-signed watch with a barometer is not working and has other flaws (see other listing for details), we have kept them side-by-side because of their amazingly similar design, and the barometre complimenting the compass.The Solid 18k gold case and overall construction and design of this pocket watch is stunningly gorgeous, and we believe has been captured that in the high-resolution photos in this listing. We only use natural lighting for our photos, which sometimes leads to shadows or bright spots, but those should be reasonably easily distinguishable.The diameter of this special BIG treasure, excluding the bow and stem, 2 1/4 inches across, or approximately 5.7 cm. This 18k solid gold pocket watch, and hallmarked as such, weighs in at almost 3.9 ounces (3.875 ounces), or almost 1/4 of a pound (and over 120 grams)! The Bow is also solid gold. One can see the 18K solid gold hallmark on the inside of both the front and back covers. The cuvette, though unmarked, also appears to be solid gold. This pocket watch is definitely 18K Gold, and is guaranteed as such!Stunning, gorgeous, superb quality and rare are all appropriate adjectives for this pocket watch, whether as part of a watch collection or part of a high-end antiques and collectible collection, or both. Like some other items we have sold recently, including a scarce Patek Phillipe Watch and a Tiffany Repeater pocket watch and clock, the Butterfield & Butterfield Sterling Silver Sundial and compass, and like the pocket watch with a barometer which we are listing at the same time as this one on , these are unique treasures of which very few exist, rarely change hands, and come up for sale extremely rarely. This is a unique opportunity for someone looking a very special addition to their collection.While this pocket watch keeps reasonably accurate time and is absolutely in excellent running condition, it is not sold with any guarantee as to timekeeping, and if this is important to the new owner, it may require some adjustments after shipping. The pocket watch, though, is in excellent condition inside and out.Please also take a look at the Howard Miller Grandfather Clocks, Howard
