Photo and Description

Patek Philippe private label for Tiffany & Co. Spectacular 17 ligne ultra-thin 18 jewel movement. Serial number 808343. Finished, per the Extract, in 1924 and sold to Tiffany in 1929. Housed in an A. Wittnauer solid platinum case. Overall weight of the watch is 52 grams. The watch is accompanied by a matching Kreisler platinum chain. (Note, the clasps are nickel.) The platinum portion of the chain weighs 12 grams. The watch is running and keeping good time, but has not been recently serviced. It does set properly. The mainspring does slip a bit as it reaches full wind. Also note that the minute hand is a replacement and one bridge screw is missing from the movement. The Extract is included with the watch.


Sy. Hoevenaar of Leyden (Dutch) pair cased verge fusee circa 1750. The watch is in exceptional condition for its age. Interesting false pendulum balance wheel covered by a semicircle of period glass. The watch is running but unknown when last serviced.


Stunning John Johnson English pocket watch circa 1840. A rather ordinary 7 jewel movement. Housed in a solid 18K gold case (likely made in America) and fronted by a beautiful 4 color gold dial. It does run, but unknown when last serviced.


M. I. Tobias of Liverpool 7 jewel fusee pocket watch. Probably dates to around 1845. The movement was shipped to the United States and cased here in solid 18K gold by William Warner & Company of Philadelphia. The "& Co." indicates the firm that was carried on by his sons after 1844. The case weighs 43 grams. The watch is not running but the balance and all other pivots seem to be OK. The mainspring and fusee chain are also intact. It is possible that the watch simply requires servicing.


John Harrison detached lever pocket watch. Serial number 19003. Housed in an 18K solid gold case, also serial numbered 19003, hallmarked Chester 1839/40. (Case weight without case springs is about 35 grams.) The casemaker is Edward Maddock of Ormond Street. Note that the movement does have very old fingerprint damage to the gilding. Dial has a few light hairlines. I'm selling this one as not running although it will run for a few seconds at a time. I believe it just needs servicing.


Fabulous verge fusee pocket watch made by James Penny of Wells. It is numbered 101. James Penny is listed in Loomes as working in Wells between 1750 and 1760, although some features of this watch would indicate a date later in the 1700's. (Perhaps a son or other relative?) The case appears to be gilt brass, most of which is worn off the outer case. The gilding on the inner case is largely intact. The diameter of the inner case is 43mm. The dial is in excellent condition, as is the thick bullseye crystal. The hands may be mismatched. The watch is running but has not been recently serviced.


Donat Fer gold ladies pocket watch, about an American 8-size. Housed in a gorgeous solid 18K gold Donat Fer case with black enamel highlights. Beautiful gold and blue hands. Runs and sets properly. Unknown when last serviced. Total weight of the watch is 60 grams.
