Rare Chronometer Spring-Detent men's pocket watch by H.A. Favre.
The 18 karat solid gold case is very heavy. The three gold lids close well. The inner lid is signed by the maker and features the signature "Locle, Chronometer".
A spring-detent movement like this was very hard to make, but it achieved an exceptionally high accuracy. The movement was not allowed to deviate more than a few seconds per week.
Wonderful rubies, an compensation balance and a very complicated helical balance spring.
The white enamel dial is completely undamaged. Classic design with black Roman numeral markers. The de-central second hand is located in a sunken sub-dial. The original gold/black enamel hands are a joy to behold.
The watch comes with a matching winding key.
