This is a pair cased verge with clear English Silver hallmarks for London 1791
The watch was made by Henry Brownbill, a listed maker of repute
The watch is keeping time to around +/- 10inutes a day
Also if this is your first verge fusee pocket watch, please do ask for advice before buying as these watches are tricky to wind and easy to break
Movement – the gilt full plate verge movement has cylindrical pillars and a fine decorative pierced watch cock and also a silver regulator disc. The movement is signed “Henry Brownbill, Leeds” # 5040 and is in 85% mint condition – some scratches around the plate pins
The movement has its original and hard to find silver dust cap, also signed “Henry Brownbill, Leeds, 5040”
Inner case – the movement comes in a silver inner case, which has a hinged bezel and the watch is wound from the back, set from the front and swings out from the front also. The case has a smooth plain finish and is in 90% mint condition – the case has an old repair inside the case, around the stem which is common with most pair cased watches. There is also a light groove from the outer case but overall the case is in excellent condition
Outer case – the silver outer case has a smooth plain finish and a large box hinge. The case has a smooth plain finish and is in 95% mint condition – the case button is worn away but apart from that a super clean case
The watch has a superb watch paper from Bristol
Dial – the white enamel dial has gilt hands and the dial is in 70% mint condition – a fine hairline around the edge of the dial between the 10 and 1 and then an ultra light hairline around the edge from the 3-6 plus light scratches elsewhere
