The watch has an amazing hand painted enamel outer case depicting the Blue Mosque in Istanbul;beautiful hand hammered repousse silver middle case and plain silver inner case. Fine enamel fancy dial with Ottoman numbers. Original hands and original high domed crystal. All the parts original! Amazing fire gilt verge fusee movement with hand pierced balance cock, silver regulator disc. It comes with a matching key. Jean-Antoine Lépine (LPine, LePine, Lepine, LEpine), was a revolutionary and inventive French watch and clockmaker, who contributed with crucial inventions for watchmaking still used nowadays. He was amongst the finest French watchmakers, who were years ahead of every other country in this respect. Around 1770, he devised a means of manufacturing a pocket watch that could be thinner, favouring the onward quest for further miniaturization. His radical design broke with a 300-year tradition and ushered in the age of precision timekeeping, the modern pocket watch was born. In addition to paving the way for the making of even thinner watches, this innovation was readily adaptable as the basic model for mass-producing watch-movements, a process that was to begin in the nineteenth century. Up to the 1840s, watches were all hand-finished, so that parts were not interchangeable. The Swiss, Leschot in particular, believed there was a market for cheaper, machine made watches with interchangeable parts. Refusing the incipient industrialization, French watch making only survived by becoming a peripheral adjunct to the Swiss watch making powerhouse, with only a few isolated Parisian cabinotiers still making truly French watches with French movements. The usual practice in the 18th century was to have the movement between two parallel plates and the balance wheel outside the top plate. The Lépine calibre discarded the top plate altogether and used individual cocks mounted on a single plate. This arrangement made it easier to assemble and repair the pocket watches, but also allowed the balance to be set to one side. Essentially, the “Lépine calibre” or “calibre à pont” , served to reduce a watchs thickness. To do this, it exchanged the traditional frame with two bottom plates for a single plate onto which the train is fixed with independent bridges. It also removed the fusee and its chain and then began using the cylinder escapement. He also invented the floating mainspring going barrel. The Lépine calibre uses bars and bridges instead of pillars and upper plates. As mentioned, the movement has no fusee which equalizes the driving power transmitted to the train, replaced instead by a going barrel to drive the train directly. This improvement was facilitated by using the cylinder escapement and enhanced springs. The calibre was quickly adopted throughout France and today its basic design is what characterizes all mechanical watches. It is important to note that the term “Lépine” can refer to both the calibre itself or a type of pocket watch with a flat, open-faced case in which the second wheel is placed in the axis of the winder shaft, in opposition to the savonete (or Hunter) watch where the second wheel and winder shaft are placed on perpendicular axes. This design has been known within the watch industry as the Lépine style ever since. Lépine’s work profoundly influenced all subsequent watchmaking, particularly Abraham Louis Breguet who used a modified version of the “calibre ponts” for his ultra slim watches. Indeed, except from the very start of his career the celebrated and extremely well known Breguet almost always used Lépine calibres and then modified them. Along with Ferdinand Berthoud Lépine was master of Breguet. NOTE:PLEASE OBSERVE CAREFULLY THE PHOTOS! IT IS A SIGNIFICANT PART OF THE DESCRIPTION.

C 3-16 (Case is in Very Good Condition – slightly worn) D 3-43-53 (Dial is in Very Good Condition – hairline – very slightly chipped) M 3 (Movement is in Very Good Condition) R 8.5 (#1 is considered common to #10, which is an extremely rare item) Very attractive verge fusee, repousse case shows wear but evenly. Dial is still with sharp colors. Pair Case Higher end early verge fusee watches were often in a pair case. Pair case refers to when a pocket watch is placed within another case (nesting), therefore two cases. The outter protective case is often very decorative. There are also watches, such as those made for the Turkish Market, that had up to four cases, each nesting perfectly within each other and keeping the inner watch safe from damage. Key-wind/Key-set Movements The very first pocket watches up until the third quarter of the 19th century had key-wind and key-set movements. A watch key was necessary to wind the watch and to set the time. This was usually done by opening the case back and putting the key over the winding-arbor (which was set over the watch’s winding-wheel, to wind the mainspring) or by putting the key onto the setting-arbor, which was connected with the minute-wheel and turned the hands. Some watches of this period had the setting-arbor at the front of the watch, so that removing the crystal and bezel was necessary to set the time. This watch includes a reproduction of the correct size key, it is not the original. Verge Fusee Escapement Used in antique spring-powered mechanical watches and clocks, a fusee is a cone-shaped pulley with a helical groove around it, wound with a cord or chain which is attached to the mainspring barrel. Fusees were used from the 15th century to the early 20th century to improve timekeeping by equalizing the uneven pull of the mainspring as it ran down. The mainspring is coiled around a stationary axle (arbor), inside a cylindrical box, the barrel. The force of the spring turns the barrel. Repoussé or Repoussage Repousse is a metalworking technique in which a malleable metal is ornamented or shaped by hammering from the reverse side to create a design in low relief. It is also known as embossing. We consider any reasonable Best Offers – Please submit your best offers! ABOUT US: Ashland presents the worlds best vintage and pre-owned watches and jewelry online.

The original dial has got a bit of damage at the bottom and a few hairline cracks as can be seen in the photos. The dial also has its original beetle and poker hands which is a nice feature.

Georgian Silver Ripon Chain Fusee Verge Paul Revere Pair Case Pocket Watch 1775

A mint and very rare condition solid silver late-18th century verge chain driven fusee consular cased pocket watch by Thomas Edwards of Ripon, fully serviced, overhauled and keeping good verge time. The watch with the rare feature of a heavy and substantial silver pair case in fabulous condition. The watch has been fully serviced and overhauled by my watch maker. The watch comes from a private collection where it has clearly been looked after. On the evening of April 18, 1775, Paul Revere was sent for by Dr. Joseph Warren, the last major patriot leader left in Boston and a personal friend of Reveres. When he arrived at Dr. Warrens surgery, Revere found out that British regular troops were preparing to march to Concord, Massachusetts, to capture or destroy military stores that had been gathered there. Warren informed Revere that he had just received intelligence from his own spy network that the troops planned to stop in Lexington, Massachusetts, on the road to Concord and arrest Samuel Adams. Patriot leaders who were staying in a house owned by one of Hancocks relatives. Warren begged Revere to stop in Lexington and warn Adams and Hancock to get out of the way of the British troops. Warren also informed Revere that he had already sent one messenger to Lexington a Mr. William Dawes who had taken the longer land route out Boston Neck, around Back Bay, and over the bridge into Cambridge, Massachusetts, by Harvard College. The friend hung two lanterns, meaning the British planned to leave Boston by sea across the Charles River, as opposed to a single lantern, which would mean the troops planned to march entirely by land, by the same route William Dawes had taken. Presumably the water route would be shorter, although as it turned out the troops were so slow it really mattered very little which way they went. Successfully passing by the British warship HMS Somerset, that had been anchored close by where the ferries normally crossed to Charlestown, the two men dropped Revere off near the old Charlestown battery just outside of town. Making him way into Charlestown, Revere met with the local Sons of Liberty, who verified that they had seen his lantern signals (which by then were no longer necessary). Revere then borrowed a horse from Charlestown patriot John Larkin (who actually had to get the horse from his father, Samuel Larkin) and then set off through the countryside northwest towards Lexington and Concord. Narrowly escaping capture by a British patrol just outside of Charlestown, Revere charged his planned route somewhat and arrived in Lexington just past midnight. We do not know what he said at each of the houses along the road. We do know exactly what he said when he got to Lexington, however, as there was a sentry on duty outside the house where Adams and Hancock lodged, and that sentry, a Sergeant Monroe, later wrote down what happened. As Revere approached the house, Monroe told him not to make so much noise, that everyone in the house had retired for the night. Youll have noise enough before long! The regulars are coming out! Despite this, Revere still had trouble convincing the sentry to let him pass until John Hancock, who was still awake and heard the commotion, recognized Reveres voice, after which Revere was allowed to enter the house and deliver his news. About 30 minutes later William Dawes arrived. The two messengers refreshed themselves (probably got something to eat and drink) and then decided to continue on to the town of Concord, to verify that the military stores had been properly dispersed and hidden away. Along the road they were joined by a third man, a Dr. Samuel Prescott, who they recognized as a High Son of Liberty. Soon afterwards they were all stopped by a British patrol. Dawes, who had probably turned aside to alarm a house, noticed what was going on and made his escape. The British herded Prescott and Revere into a nearby meadow, when Prescott suddenly said Put on! (meaning scatter) and the two patriots suddenly rode off in different directions. Prescott, a local man, successfully eluded capture, and alarmed the militia in Lincoln and Concord; Revere chose the wrong patch of woods to head for and was recaptured by more British soldiers. Held for a while, questioned, and even threatened, Revere was eventually released, although his horse was confiscated. Making his way back into Lexington on foot, Revere assisted Adams and Hancock to leave for Woburn, Massachusetts. Revere and Hancocks secretary, a Mr. Lowell, were engaged in carrying away a trunk of papers that Hancock had left behind when the British troops marched onto Lexington Green. Revere reported that he could hear the gunshots and see the smoke from the musket fire when the skirmish of Lexington Green began, but he could not identify who had fired first, as a building just then obscured his view. UNUSUAL FEATURES : The watch in simply magnificent condition and from a private collection where it has clearly been looked after very well. Watches from this period with no pin holes, excess solder filling or stretch marks are very uncommon today. The watch is best described as a time-capsule from the 18th century in simply stunning condition.
