Beautiful silver verge oignon watch from 1710s, late Louis XIV period.
Diameter is 54mm, height without bow is 70 mm, thickness is 30mm.

Watch has silver champléve dial - not often to see on French production.
Movement features quarter repeating of vert early construction - it strikes with single hammer to the silver bell.
Movement is very nice - it features beautiful silver balance bridge, round silver pillars. Beautifully pierced and engraved silver case.

Dial and movement are signed by De Lorme in Paris.
