The elegant four glass case is veneered in well patinated and highly figured rosewood and stands on four adjustable brass bun feet. It has a dentil moulded cornice to the top. The square silvered engraved brass dial has a chapter ring with Roman hour numerals, outside minute markers and original Breguet style moon hands. The maker’s signature is engraved within the dial centre below XII and there is a strike/silent lever above XII.
The plated movement, of characteristic high London quality, has substantial plates, boldly turned pillars and chain fusees. It has its original anchor escapement and brass bob pendulum. The hours are struck on a bell set on the backplate. There is a push hour repeat button in the middle of the top front cornice of the case.
