A very fine, heavy hunting case pocket watch with "Petite Sonnerie" and "Grande Sonnerie"
Case: 18k rose gold, tiered, polished, à goutte, gold dome, slide for "Grande and Petite Sonnerie", slide for silence. Dial: enamel, radial Roman hours, auxiliary seconds, Louis XV hands. Movm.: bridge movement, nickel-plated, stripe-decorated, 2 hammers / 2 gongs, tandem winding with mirror polished click on the top, screwed chatons, gold screw compensation balance.

"Grande and Petite Sonnerie"
On the quarter hour it strikes the number of hours on a large bell and then the number of quarter hours since the hour on a second bell (usually with a double strike) - except on the full hour, when it does not strike the quarter hours. The Petite Sonnerie only strikes the quarter hours, maybe with a double strike on two bells; as with the Grande Sonnerie, it only strikes the hours on the full hour but not the quarter hours.
