This marvellous pocket watch has a fine enamel painting on engine-turned and translucent cobalt blue enameling on its back; equally striking are the decorated case band and bezel with their translucent paillon borders. The watch is in perfect original condition and has never been restored or damaged in any way – a rare and high value piece of jewellery.
