The present watch, fresh to the market, was discovered in Japan just a few months ago. It is only three numbers away from the watch sold by Sotheby's in The Celebration of English Watch, Part three, lot 40 on 15 November 2016. The movement is highly engraved and has a large barrel for the winding. The engraving is very typically English from the period. The case is in exceptional condition with only some very minor losses to the white enamel border. The case has extremely tight hinges and has not been opened very often at all. The cuvette is signed and engraved with an illustration of the horse pulling a rope, indicating the direction of wind and a pair of watch hands beside the off-set hand-set square.
The oval case is a signature of William Anthony and the case back is centred with diamonds, framed by rows of pearls, gold wire-work with outer blue and red enamel, all enclosed with large split-pearls. The pendent is further enhanced by split-pearls and a pusher to open the hinge back.
