Rare Silver MYSTERY Pocket Watch by Armond Schwob c1890
This is a very rare silver pocket watch made by the company Armond Schwob circa 1890
This “Mystery” pocket watch has an inner wheel made of glass with teeth. You wind the watch up as normal and the train wheel rotate the glass wheel.
The glass wheel sits between two plates of glass which protect the dial and hand area
The watch is wound manually but you have to move the hands manually with your finfer tips, subsequently these watches should not really be used on a regular basis as the hands are delicate and if the glass wheel should break, the watch is un repairable
This watch does work well but is sold as a novelty timepiece and with no warranty should it be broken by the buyer
Movement – the small cylinder movement is signed “H R Brevete” # 3150. The movement is in 95% mint condition – very clean condition
Case – the movement comes in a silver open face case, which has a hinged bezel and back bezel. The front bezel pops open by pressing down a button on the side. You change the hands from this side. The back bezel opens by hand to reveal a hinged silver inner cover decorated with engine turning. This hinges open to reveal the movement.
This section is signed “A.S & F, Mysterieuse, Brevete, S.G.D.G.”
The case has a smooth plain finish and is in 90% mint condition – 2 very small and very light bruises on the side and light surface scratches
