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

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.
