Dent "Watchmaker to the Queen", 33 Cockspur Street, London

, Movement No. 27231, 52 mm, 159 g, circa 1870

A magnificent gold enamel minute repeating pocket watch with stoppable jumping centre seconds

Case: 18k gold, case maker's punch mark "AS". Dial: enamel. Movm.: 4/5 plate movement made by Hektor Golay, 2 hammers / 2 gongs, 2 barrels, gold screw compensation balance.

The case is magnificently decorated with translucent enamel and gold ornaments and four exquisitely painted putti. Equally lavish is the movement itself: it has no less than 13 screwed chatons and of course the balance clock is decorated with fine engraving.
This top quality watch bears the initials "ED", which indicates that it may have been Edward Dent’s own timepiece.
