Lot No. 235* (93rd Auction)
F. Wilmot, Geneva and London, "The standard watch", Movement No. 143, Case No. 143, 50 mm, 111 g, circa 1880

A gentleman's fine pocket watch in a hunting case
Case: 18k gold. Dial: enamel. Movm.: 3/4 plate movement, gold screw compensation balance, Wilmot's patented fine adjusting device.

This type of movement was used by a number of watch manufacturers. The patented heart-shaped fine adjustment mechanism, the screw-on lever pallet and chatons as well as the minute wheel are technical enhancements that come as something of a surprise in a watch in this price range. The dial with its fine art nouveau numerals is also an eye-catcher.
