Lot No. 127 (93rd Auction)
Bigelow Bros. & Kennard, Boston, Case No. 1956, 42 mm, 62 g, circa 1850

An exquisite, thin Swiss gold enamel pocket watch with turnable case - so called "Cabriolet" - wearable as a lepine or as hunting cased watch - made for the North-American market
Case: 18k gold, enamel. Dial: gilt. Movm.: bridge movement, screw compensation balance.
This pocket watch stands out because of the exceptional quality of the case and the polychrome enamelled alpine landscape scenes. The gilded dial with its delicately engraved South Tyrolean landscape showing a castle, a castle ruin and a vineyard completes the pleasant picture. The case manufactory was also used by Patek Philippe during their early years.
