Markwick Markham, London, Movement No. 16584, 95 mm, 439 g, circa 1786
A highly attractive and large pair-cased coachwatch with verge escapement Case: silver. Dial: silver Champlevé dial. Movm.: full plate movement, keywind, chain/fusee, three-arm brass balance.
A striking piece of impressive proportions in excellent condition. Markwick Markham produced a large number of watches such as this for the Ottoman market; we are not certain whether the watch somehow found its way back home or whether it was never delivered to its intended destination. The "standard" hour dial with Roman and Arabic numerals is unusual in combination with the Ottoman markings on the regulator disc.
