Richard Ganthony, London, Lombard Street

, Movement No. 2020, 57 mm, 165 g, circa 1815

A heavy quarter repeating pocket chronometer with duplex escapement

Case: 18k gold, case maker's punch mark "WM", hallmark of 1814. Dial: enamel, off-white. Movm.: full plate movement, 2 hammers / 2 gongs, balance spring with temperature compensation, three-arm gold balance.

The unusual temperature compensation and the masterly execution make this a very interesting timepiece by the Clockmaker’s Company of London. The typically English, off-white dial bears the signature of Richard Ganthony , who was freed from the company in 1794 after his apprenticeship with Thomas Miles and who became a master in 1828. His son Richard Pinfold Ganthony was also a watchmaker. Father and son presumably both died around 1845.
Case: very good
Dial: very good, hairline
Movm.: very good, capable of running, cleaning recommended
