The silvered engine turned dial centre has Roman numerals, Breguet-style hands and is signed James Murray, Royal Exchange on the silvered chapter ring. The signature is repeated James Murray, Royal Exchange LONDON to the backplate of the movement. The corners of the dial have exquisite foliate engraving and are gilded. The plated movement has a single fusee and its original anchor escapement.
