The very fine quality movement of this watch was supplied to Charles Frodsham by Nicole, Nielsen & Co. who have used a Swiss ebauche, fitted the ratchet-tooth lever escapement, balance and cock, and carried out some of the finishing. Much of the chronograph mechanism is visible to the backplate, whilst the minute repeating work is concealed beneath the dial and between the plates, with one hammer visible next to the balance cock. The substantial 18ct gold case is of wonderful quality and the armorials of the Sandford family are beautifully painted in polychrome enamel to the back.
For a note on Charles Frodsham, see lot 74 and for Nicole Nielsen, see lot 75.
