Cylinder escapement would allow to make the watch with cheaper and better time keeper. In the mean time, watch was obviously made by skilful master, who was aware of new tendencies and was able to built small repeaters of excellent quality. It's really pity that watch isn't signed. While dealing with antique watches, it's may be first time I see verge escapement in bridge design movement. The winding and time setting is performed from the face side, as in classical French verge watches.
Condition Movement and keyless winding function works as it should, but as usual I recommend cleaning. Repeating functions well, as it should, please see video below the photos. Case is in good condition with common period wear. Dial is in generally good condition with several minor flakes. Diameter is 39mm, height without bow is 48mm.Unusual and high quality piece, nice addition to your verge watches collection, don't miss it. Video will open in a new window.
