French Verge Fusee Pocket Watch Enamel Painted History YOUTUBE

950.00

What a very nice French verge fusee pocket watch from the early 1800's. Its in great running condition for a old verge pocket watch. Currently its running approximately 5-minutes fast per day; however, with just a small amount of adjustment to the Tompion regulator and it will even be more accurate.  There is a considerable amount of history on the watchmaker by the name of Abraham Guillaume & Barbier of Boudry. The watchmaker practiced in Paris during the 1812-25 years. The alternative history is the watch plate is stamped "JAPY" in a rectangular box which would logically date the watch to 1776-1813 upon Japy's death. The movement has square pillars and is stamped on the back plate SN 10657 and underneath the interior plate. The hairspring is designed of early years due to it being only 3-4 circular rounds around the verge staff. The timepiece was serviced in Denver, Colorado at my workshop which is 5182 feet above sea level. Therefore, it will need slight adjustment to the regulator for sea level locations on the East/West costs of USA.  View the movement video at: https://youtu.be/hr9JPKNrrpw
