We have recently acquired a stunning collection of pocket watches. This is the result of a lifetime of interest coupled with passionate judicious collecting. There are countless examples of important hallmarks of innovation and standards of this industry. We will offer new watches each week. As we move through this collection please consider Hidden Treasures to be your ultimate destination when searching to add to your collection.
This beautiful watch is an 18K gold quarter hour repeater. We believe it most likely French, but welcome more specific information. The watch is working and chimes. The hours are marked with black Arabic numbers. The hands are blued steel and pear shaped. The dial does have hairline cracks that are visible: one to the left of the 6, one between the 11 and 12, there are chips in the dial at 2 O'clock, 12 O'clock, 3 O'clock, and between 6 and 7 O'clock. The case has normal wear, there are a few dents in the back cover. All covers close securely and the hinges are in great working order. The glass crystal has a few fissures near the front hinge and chips along the edge at the 6 O'clock and 2 O'clock position. This watch is able to withstand the scruntiny and we are so pleased to offer it to our customers.

Due to the success of our E-bay business, Hidden Treasures is pleased to have the opportunity to give back to those in need by donating 5% of our total profits to The Fountains of Hope Foundation International. FOH is a faith based, non-profit organization that is committed to the installation, integration, and teaching of safe water solutions to provide a healthier environment for those in need. The water purifiers that are distributed are able to make chlorine out of ordinary table salt to treat up to 55 gallons of water per minute so that it is safe for drinking. Volunteers partner with schools and churches in affected communities to provide safe water in schools, orphanages, and medical facilities in order to help those in need. The organization has done significant work in Haiti, Panama, Africa, and Mexico in times of disaster, and are committed to continue doing their work wherever it is needed. To find out more about the organization, and to learn ways in which you can help, please check out their website at http://fountainsofhope.org/ . Thank you for all of your interest! It is our hope that, someday, safe water will reach those in the furthest corners of the world!
