Fallery, London, 37 x 57 mm, 88 g

, circa 1640/1740

A rare oval puritan single hand pendant watch

Case: brass, polished. Dial: brass, engraved, brass hand. Movm.: full plate movement, applied floral decorations, chain/fusee, verge escapement, three-arm brass balance.

Because of its simple appearance that is supposed to be in character with Puritan austerity, this watch is an excellent example of the so-called "Puritan" watch style of 17th century England. The movement was manufactured in an oval shape for the existing case as part of a later modernization; according to Brian Loomes’ records, Fallery lived in London around 1740.
Case: very good, worn
Dial: very good
Movm.: very good, later custom made, capable of running, cleaning recommended
