Beautiful lady golden watch with it's brooch.
The set is decorated with natural pearls. Back cover of watch is nicely guilloched.

Golden dial is engraved by hand. Nice and delicate work.

It's a verge fusee escapement watch, construction that was present since XVI till beginning of XIX century. Movement is fire gilt, beautiful cut and engraved balance bridge, silver regulation disc.
French work of 1810-1820. These movements was making in small workshops, before factory production, and such small movements required lot of craftsmanship.

Nice cosmetic condition, but 3 and 6 hours were restored, please see photos. In real life it's not very visible, please mind that watches looks much larger on the screen than in real life.
Otherwise good condition.

The movement works ok, but as any verge fusee movement of this age, especially miniature one, can give 20-30 minutes gain or loss per day.

Diameter is 32 mm or 1.29". Brooch is 26mm or 1" length.
Total weight is 24.6 grams, or 0.87 oz.
