Signed Breguet & Fils, Movement No. 15217, Case No. 15217, 61 mm, 156 g, circa 1810
A gentleman's very fine, rare and large minute repeating pocket watch with carillon and hour and quarter repeating mechanism - "The River God" Case: 18k rose gold. Dial: gilt. Movm.: full plate movement, 3 hammers / 3 gongs, three-arm steel balance.
The back of this striking watch is decorated with the exquisitely embossed portrait of a river god with laurel wreath and oar under the sun; an Apollo head inside a sun-like halo in the sky is surrounded by oak and palm leaves. Three clearly visible gongs embrace the movement, a delicate locking plate and fork sit on the plate. It is extremely rare to find a watch dating from this time period with a minute repeater and even more unusual that it should also have a carillon and a striking mechanism.
