Sometimes you hold an antique pocket watch in your hand and are just amazed by its age and condition that takes your breath away and here is a fantasticÂ 18ct pocket watch by John Cross that was made in 1848. There are so many unique aspects of this pocket watch that makes it so special and unlike any that we have had before. Pocket watches come in two main forms - without a front cover (open face pocket watch) or with a front cover (full hunter pocket watch). When they don't have a front cover, they usually have the bow of the pocket watch at the 12 o'clock position and when it is a full hunter pocket watch, the bow is at the 3 o'clock position, however this is an open face pocket watch with the bow at the 3 o'clock position. Furthermore, when you push on the top of the bow, it springs open the front of the pocket watch exactly as a full hunter pocket watch would do. Not only is the dial all original, it is in spectacular condition which is incredible considering that it is over 160 years old. With traditional black Roman numerals and the sub-seconds, the time is displayed with those elegant Breguet style minute and hour hands. Turning the pocket watch over reveals the most intricate and high quality hand engraving that would have painstakingly taken hours to engrave by hand and opening the back and the dust cover reveals a gorgeous and immaculate movement signedÂ "John B Cross 70 Cornbill London". Completely serviced and complete with our twelve month warranty, this has what is called a diamond end stone on the balance which can be seen in the close up image of the movement. John Cross made some very high grade pocket watches as well as clocks, and this pocket watch by him is certainly no exception and a fantastic testament to the quality of craftsmanship all those years ago.

Here is a genuine antique pocket watch that was made 127 years ago and is in such incredible condition that we first thought that this was a reproduction pocket watch. Not only is the condition of the case outstanding, this is a demi-hunter pocket watch which has remained the most popular and sought after style of antique pocket watch that we deal in and here is an antique demi-hunter pocket watch that is as good as it gets. A demi-hunter pocket watch is one that has the protection of a full hunter pocket watch i.e. one with a front cover with the ease to read the time like an open face pocket watch i.e. one without a cover. Not only that it has the double spade hands which differentiates the hour hand from the minute hand when the case is closed and shows the Roman numerals in blue enamel. The case is just one of the reasons why this is such an incredible pocket watch. Made in sterling silver in 1888, the back and front have the traditional engine turned design. This alone is not that extraordinary. What is extraordinary is the condition of it well after 120 years. The engine turning on both the front and back cover is still so sharp and crisp and is without a doubt one of the best examples that we have seen for a long while. Measuring 51mm across by 70mm from the bottom to the top of the bow, this is pocket watch has a wonderful heft to it and feels just perfect in the hand. Then to make this even more special, this pocket watch was retailed in Sydney by the jewellery and watchmaking company of TT Jones and Sons.Â T.T Jones and Sons were a highly regarded business that operated from 1853 until 1926, so not only is this a wonderful pocket watch but it also has the early Australian history attached. Inside is an English Rotherhams movement that has just come back from our watchmaker after undergoing a full service and now runs perfectly and comes with our 12 month warranty and it too is signed TT Jones and Sons. The movement is a crown wind and pin set style which means the movement is wound via the crown and the time set by pressing in the small button near the 4 o'clock and then turning the crown to move the hands. We simply adore this pocket watch for it being a demi-hunter, for its immaculate condition and for the Australian history and this really is as good as it gets.
