This watch is 55mm in diameter. This watch has just been serviced ( All parts removed, cleaned, inspected, repaired, oiled, and time adjusted) This watch is running very good. The watch keeps good verge time ( -+ 1 min per day during the test run).

This watch is super beautiful! I cannot believe this watch is so old. This watch is ready to display! The watch will come with the key.


Shipping: Shipping priority mail will be $0 in USA with full insurance.


: This means the watch was completely disassembled, every part checked, repaired if needed, cleaned, and oiled. The watch is timed and adjusted. Verge watches are adjusted to keep good verge time, not perfect!


: If you do not know how to operate a fusee, please contact me. These watches are different!


: These watches are very old! If you buy a Verge pocket watch, over 200 years old, don’t expect to carry the watch daily and it keep perfect time. These watches are meant for museums and display! They can be carried and used but they are no Rolex! The verge design is not a good one but great 300 years ago.
