It is rare to find an 18ct Century pocket watch in full working order, harder still to find a pair case pocket watch with its original third outer tortoiseshell case, one that has a calendar and near on impossible to find a pocket watch that can tick all of these boxes. So suffice to say, here is an incredible and very rare Tarts verge pair case pocket with calendar made in 1763 that has it all. Traditionally pair case pocket watches are when there is an outer case protecting the pocket watch itself, so to find one that has its original tortoiseshell and sterling silver inlayed case that protects the "outer" silver case is a real find. The feel and look of the tortoiseshell case has that wonderful chocolate brown colour and is highlighted by the silver hinge and detailing on the front. This outer case measures 58.3mm across by 57.9mm. Then removing this allows you to see and feel the glorious sterling silver repousssĂ© case that is so tactile to feel and incredible to admire. The front of this case is delightful with the simple yet elegant design, however turning it over reveals that magnificent scene. The amount of time and effort to create this is incredible and alone is such a talking piece. Measuring 50.5mm across by 51mm, it sits so well in the palm of your hand. And then the last but by no means least inner section. While the sterling silver case is now plain, the dial and inner workings are magnificent. The silver dial is comparable to the repousssĂ© work on the outer case. With those gorgeous hands and dial with both Roman numerals and five minute markers, there is also the calendar function. And then opening it up further shows the spectacular workings of this pocket watch, made all the more incredible to think that it was all hand made over 250 years ago. With the verge escapement, fusee movement and wonderful pierced balance cock as well as its elegant pillars on the side, this pocket watch not only looks incredible, it is also in full working order. This is an exceptional 18th Century verge pocket watch that has so many incredible features that separates it from a standard pair case pocket watch, and one that will suit any astute and avid collector of fine time pieces.

Here is a 14ct gold Waltham pocket watch made in 1918 in exceptional condition with an equally beautiful movement inside. Too often the term "mint condition" is used when describing a piece of jewellery or pocket watch for example, however it can aptly be used for this pocket watch. The engine turned design on both the front and back are still so crisp and sharp and show how little this pocket watch was actually used and handled. Often this engine turned design gets worn down as does the hinges on the case, whereas the front cover opens easily when the bow is pressed down, and stops at 90 degrees to the dial. Measuring 50mm across by 70mm from the bottom to the top of the bow, the heft and feel of this pocket watch in the palm of your hand will feel just right. Made in 14ct solid gold as opposed to rolled gold adds to the charm and character of an already very handsome antique pocket watch. With the dial itself in equally excellent condition, it is as pure white in colour today as when it was made 199 years ago. With the numerals and sub-seconds at the bottom, this is a very easy to read dial. Inside is the beautiful 15 jewelled manual wind Waltham movement that has been completely serviced and comes with our twelve month warranty. If you have been after a perfect pocket watch for yourself or for a gift, then this antique Waltham pocket watch might just be the one that ticks all the boxes.
