George Oram & Son, 19&18 Wilmington Square, London, Movement No. 11574, Case No. 11574, 52 mm, 149 g, circa 1860
A gentleman's very fine minute repeating pocket watch and independent jumping seconds 'seconde morte' Case: 18k gold. Dial: enamel. Movm.: 4/5 plate movement, 2 hammers / 2 gongs, 2 barrels, gold screw compensation balance.
In 1862 Oram & Son received an award for their excellent craftsmanship and inventiveness. Mercer‘s "Chronometer Makers of the World" lists every single type of central seconds used by Oram & Son - this model has a jumping central seconds hand. On the movement plate, only the balance and the intricate gear work with two barrels are visible. The back is decorated with the inscription "Semper fidelis" under the picture of an arm raising a weapon – a common symbol which, however, in this case uses an archaic mace instead of the more frequently shown sword.
