Lot No. 82 (94th Auction)
CHL, Swiss, Case No. 3514, 56 mm, 127 g, circa 1800

A gentleman's magnificent quarter repeating four-colour gold verge pocket watch with two jacquemarts and erotic automaton
Case: 18k rose gold. Dial: enamel, skeletonized, visible mirror-polished rack strike. Movm.: full plate movement, keywind, chain/fusee, 2 hammers, 2 gongs, three-arm brass balance.

The two Jacquemarts, a man and a woman in three-colour gold Roman armour strike the hours with their hammers on two large bells that are visible in the upper half of the dial. The centre of the dial has a small enamel chapter ring with Arabic hours. The automaton at "6" shows a pair of two-colour gold figures, a couple making love on a Récamière – the erotic scene comes to life whenever the repeater is activated.
