Product Description

This superior pocket watch is a fine example of a Breguet timepiece dating from the second half of the 19th century.
The movement is fitted with a high quality lever escapement with ruby pallets and a "moustache" counterpoised lever; it has a bimetallic temperature compensation balance with gold adjustment screws, the Breguet balance spring and a repeater movement which is released through a slider on the case.
Charles Denis Duverdy (1829-1898) was a legal practitioner at the imperial court in Paris and a doctor of jurisprudence. He wrote many legal papers and in 1863 he was appointed mayor of Maisons-sur-Seine, which was renamed to Maisons-Laffitte in 1882. Duverdy held the position until 1870.
