SUMMARY:
A  stunning solid silver, English, 19th century highly engraved chain driven fusee Lever pocket watch, by the maker Andrew Smith of Kings Lynn. The watch is very substantial, and in a 1.0 oz silver case, so requires a secure pocket. The watch is in full working order and comes complete with a key for winding and presentation box.

The buy it now price is a clear reflection of the rarity, stunning condition and long-term investment for this watch. Mint watches in this condition, can only rise in value, given the limited supply of such items. We are a Platinium eBay Power-Seller, so please bid with confidence.

THE DIAL: 100%,  the white enamel dial with fine black Roman numerals, and a separate minute track to outside of dial with no chips or hairlines, with a subsidary seconds dial. With gold hour and minute hands and seconds hand. The original glass in very fine condition. Diameter is 42 mm.

THE MOVEMENT: 100% mint, with richly gilded full plate in wonderful condition. The rare balance cock and foot in superb condition and of a simple pattern, but beautifully engraved with leafs and similar motifs and signed Patent. The balance cock with a ruby end-stone to the centre of the shiny 9k gold  three arm balance wheel. The back plate with further decoration and a blued steel Bosley regulator. The watch is keywind, and movement size is 39 mm diameter. The escapement with a very good and strong action and jewelled to this wheel. The movement signed by Andrew Smith of Kings Lynn, and number 14362. Pierced gilded fusee stop work with iron hinge. The watch with fusee chain on tight to barrel and fusee cone and a good free swinging balance and the watch runs the full length of the fusee chain, keeping good time. The watch comes with a winding key for hands set and winding. The movement comes with its original integral gilt dust cuvette which locks on tightly to the movement. The watch is much brighter and  crisp than in these dark photos, which are limited by my camera and lighting equiment. 

THE CASE: 95% mint, the solid silver case measures an impressive 50 mm outside diameter. The silver hinged covers all closing tightly, and in fine order. The three knuckle hinge in good order. The cases with London hall-marks, case maker marks and sterling silver marks. The case maker mark of "RG" and case number of 14362. The pendant and very well made bow, in superb condition. The case with no pin-holes or stretch marks, to the case, just a few small dings to rear cover. The inner dust cuvette also in very clean and good order.

The watch case has not been buffed up or over-polished as seems to be the case so often with early watches offered on eBay. This is a very fine period solid silver pocket watch in simply stunning condition, which is a very rare collectable item or a possible investment for the future or of course a fine gift for a birthday, anniversary, wedding etc.
