Johannes Jaques of Rotterdam was active in the second half of the 17th century. This verge pocket watch is in marvellous condition, the exquisite floral ornamentation of the dial continues into the movement to the verge holder. The symbols for the weekdays are described in Old Dutch and as finely engraved as the expressive faces of the moon phases. The silver balance cock also has an unusual shape. Alltogether this is a striking piece of technical and artistic excellence.
