Antique Swiss sterling silver pocket watch c.1888 featuring hand painted bright gold detailing and dark red roman numerals set onto a  white enamel background. The front and the back of the watch has beautiful elaborate engravings.

 

The watch has a good weight and it is tactile to touch with the smooth glass on the front and the engravings on the body of the piece. Once the watch is wound up it has a lovely ticking noise.

 

To operate the watch a small key is provided to gently wind the watch up at the back of the watch and set the time. Please note the mechanisms are very delicate.

 

This piece is very decorative, it would work very well on a pocket watch chain for a wedding or as a statement necklace.
