Henry Voisin à Paris

, Movement No. 660, Case No. 787, 38 mm, 47 g, circa 1781

An elegant "à toc" quarter repeating gold enamel verge pocket watch

Case: 18k gold/enamel/diamonds. Dial: enamel. Movm.: full plate movement, keywind, chain/fusee, three-arm steel balance.

This pocket watch has a particular allure: its back is decorated with floral engine-turned pattern and translucent mauve enamelling and a border of opaque white enamel pearls. The edges on front and back show Champlevé enamelling. The watch has diamonds on the pushers that open the case. A perfectly preserved guild mark proves that the watch case was made in 1781; the charge mark is that of Henri Clavel (1781-1783).

Henry Voisin took the business from his father, clockmaker Charles Voisin (1685-1761) in 1760. His real name was Antoine-Henry Voisin, but he signed his works "Henry Voisin".
Case: very good, slightly scratched
Dial: very good, hairlines
Movm.: very good, to be restored, capable of running
