Fine big silver verge watch, 0.800 with quarter repetition and automatic movement - the angel beats the hours - rare!

Elegant dial with fine Arabic numerals on enamel ring - gilded brass gold medallion fire-gilt skeletonised with landscape design and angel figure with horn of plenty in the hand.
Quarter repeater with pedant trigger. The hour and quarter hours are beaten with a double strike while the angel figure moves the cornucopia to the mouth and thus gives the impression that this movement is responsible for the sonorous sound. The hours are struck first, then the quarter-hours by means of a double strike.
