Lot No. 113 (95th Auction)
Lebet & Fils, Buttes, Suisse, Case No. 26250, 49 mm, 91 g, circa 1850

An exquisite, representative gold enamel hunting case pocket watch produced for the Ottoman market
Case: 18k gold/polychrome enamel. Dial: enamel. Movm.: bridge movement, keywind, side lever escapement, screw compensation balance.

The front of this marvelously preserved hunter watch shows an exquisitely painted oval enamel portrait of an Ottoman statesman. He wears a red fez and his blue uniform is decorated with a stylised gold family tree and a stone-studded brooch. The back of the watch also bears a fine painting: a bouquet of delicate summer flowers, in the background an alpine river with a monopteros on its bank. Both paintings are framed by an opaque white enamel border and gold stars on dark blue ground.
