The case has a double hinged back with clip on bezel. Inside the back and dust covers, it bears solid 18K gold hallmarks for London 1874. The serial number of 62122 matches the movement, showing that it is all-original. The dust cover has an amazingly detailed engraving of a Victorian gentleman - possibly the original owner? Please refer to the high resolution pictures. The back is beautifully initialled with a set of highly ornate Gothic initials. All the covers snap securely shut, the crown still shows some definition and the hallmarked bow is firm. I can see a small edge knock near 7 o'clock but there are no other marks of any significance.
The pendant wound & pin set, movement is marked, R. Heitzman, Cardiff. The specification is impressive and it has capped jewels on the escapement lever and escape wheel pivots, giving a total jewel count of 19. It features screwed gold jewel settings and a large diamond endstone. Like all freesprung movements, regulation is achieved by adjustment of the screws on the balance wheel rim. The screws on this movement are particularly large and made of solid gold. The movement shows only minor signs of aging and has just one small scratch on the balance cock. It has just been serviced, is running strongly and keeping excellent time.

The white single sunk porcelain dial, with sub seconds, has bold back Roman hour numerals. It looks in mint condition with no chips or hairlines. The blued steel hands show only tiny traces of tarnishing and the glass crystal looks mint.
