Product Description

This particularly small verge pocket watch by renowned French maker Estienne Hubert is a delightful piece of art, with its enamel dial unusually decorated with polychrome floral motifs, the intricately ornamented case and the movement in perfect condition – a fine collector’s piece for any lover of vintage watches.
Estienne (Etienne) Hubert (1634 - about 1720) was a renowned clockmaker in Rouen from 1655 until 1720; he became a Master in 1656. The British Museum, the Guildhall Museum and the Victoria and Albert Museum all own clocks created by Hubert.
