The coromandel 3-tier brass edged and lined case has sunken brass handles and signed plate to the middle section.
The high quality 8-Day movement is contained within gimbals in a deep bronze lacquered brass bowl and has a silvered and engraved brass dial bearing the maker’s name and series number. The beautifully spotted fusee movement has a spring-detent escapement and compensated balance.
Henry Hughes, London, was working in Fenchurch Street between 1868 – 1941. The company was started by Thomas Hughes who sold a chronometer to Captain Bligh of the Bounty in 1780.
