How can I report a watch event without showing any watches, right? However, I am not touching on the Jaquet Droz watches this time as I have reported some interesting pieces before in thePuristS.com ( http://www.network54.com/Forum/250820/message/1159639281/Some+very+special+pieces+as+reported+by+Joe+earlier
+... )and my personal web-site ( http://www.pbase.com/taykokchoon/jaquet_droz
What I intend to cover this time are these rare pieces that might be the last time I can handle it personally ....
Look at this beauttiful pocket watch, with what looks like paillonee on the back case surrounded by small pearls and red rubies. Enamel white dial with gold hands ....
These series of 3 pictures are from the same oval shaped pocket watch. Look at the enamel painting with guilloched patterns on the case back, simply marvellous isn't it. White enamel dial with separate hour and minute sub-dial from the second sub-dial. The picture on top shows the nicely decorated pocket watch movement typical of the early 19th century.
The proof of the everlasting brightness of enamel painting can be seen on the back case of this pocket watch, rounded with white pearls. You should see the actual watch to really admire the beauty of this artistic work. White enamel dial with same type of gold hands as the first pocket watch featured above. Bezel of the front hunter case lined with small pearls.
What can be more excited for one who own the JD Grande Second to see the original Grande Second pocket watch? Here it is! Check out also the key winding movement of the 19th century.
