The Dresden school of applied arts produced a huge array of decorative designs for watches under the privy-councillor Professor Carl Ludwig Theodor Graff. The themes were very often architectural but also might have included themes from illustrated manuscripts such as cornucopia, leaves and scrolls. Minerva's head is also engraved to the central cartouche on this example..
For similar examples of Professor Graff watches, see Reinhard Meis, The Watchmakers of Dresden, PP. 204-205
