Here is a very rare bezel wind antique ball pendant watch that is truly amazing from inside and out. Made in the 1870's this pendant watch separates itself from other ball pendant watches for three very special reasons. Firstly it is made in 18 carat gold, while many of these pendant watches were made in silver. However the second and most important difference and feature of this one over so many others, is the absence of a crown to wind it. To wind the movement, one simply rotates it at the centre. This is such a clever and ingenious design of this pendant watch that showcases the quality of the piece even further. To set the time, there is a discreet pin which is on the side, which once pressed and combined with turning the centre of the watch, this will engage and turn the hands to the desired time. With the Swiss made movement having just come back from a full service, it runs well and comes with our twelve month warranty. And finally the third important feature of this, is that this very piece is featured on page 131 of â€śHow the watch was worn: A fashion for 500 yearsâ€ť by Genevieve Cummins making this an even more exciting piece of history that is actually featured in her fantastic book. Measuring 23.8mm across by 31.5mm or 35mm to the top of the bail, this is as exciting as it is extraordinary. Stock# ES9362 Circa: 1870 $6,600

Here is not only a vintage pocket watch that was made by one of the finest watchmaking companies in the world, Jaeger LeCoultre, but one that is also made all the more amazing by the fact that this pocket watch was issued and used during World War II.

This antique pocket watch was made by Waltham in 1913 and is in superb condition with not only the movement running flawlessly, but the rolled gold case still having a wonderful sharp engine turned case that has had so little wear in its life, and like the hinges, is in excellent condition. Measuring 51mm across plus the bow, the case is made from rolled gold which should not to be confused with gold plating which is much less durable. Rolled gold is a process where the gold itself is layered over a base metal then bonded together using heat and pressure and made into various items such as jewellery and of course pocket watch cases. The major advantage it has over gold plating is that because it is gold on the outside, it can be both engraved and polished, whereas this can not be done with gold plating. It is a true testament to the quality that it is still in wonderful condition even though more than 100 years has passed. The dial is also in superb condition with no cracks and displays elegant and traditional Roman numerals as well as the sub-seconds at the bottom, and all of this is powered by the beautiful fully jewelled movement in the back. The 17 jewelled movement has just come back from a full service, runs perfectly and comes with our twelve month warranty. As beautiful today as when it was made, this is a wonderful antique pocket watch to add to a collection or for a special gift for that special occasion.
