, Case No. 9172, 25 x 50 mm, 39 g, circa 1870

A very fine diamond-set gold enamel pendant watch in the form of a beetle

Case: gold enamel, the wings engine-turned, translucent cobalt blue enamelled, set with rose-cut diamonds, the head and the belly costly engraved, the eyes set with two cut diamonds, inside case back with glazed cover to insert a picture, heart-shaped gold dome. Dial: enamel, radial Roman hours, blued spade hands. Movm.: heart-shaped bridge movement, keywind, frosted, gilt, cylinder escapement, three-arm brass balance.

The condition of this scarab is exceptionally good. As these watches were worn as pendants and the opening wings subjected to wear and tear all the time, it is very unusual to find a piece where the enamel has not been restored.
Case: very good
Dial: very good
Movm.: very good, capable of running
