Unusual 18th Century Verge Pocket Watch by Thomas Beckett of Durham dated 1776!

The hallmark dates this watch to 1776, the year of the American Declaration of Independence. This is consistent with the years the watchmaker worked from c.1743 to about 1819. The maker is Thomas Beckett of Durham. The watch is in very fine condition. It features an inner sleeve to protect the movement and a glass cover over the balance. This is very unusual. The only flaws are some minor dial damage and damage to the button. All in all this is a spectacular verge. It has just been cleaned and serviced.

Price £450 (p&p £10 uk £35 overseas) posted special delivery.

NEW! Exquisite Verge Pocket Watch

Exquisite condition verge pocket watch. Unnamed but lovely condition throughout. Has a capital S date mark. Running very strongly. I can’t find any flaws with this watch. I am very proud to offer it for sale. I think the hallmark is very 1833 but suspect it could be later. Please examine the hallmark closely and tell me what you think at rcorfield863@gmail.com. Price a very reasonable £295.

Exquisite Half Hunter Silver Pocket Watch Samuel Yeomans. Chester

Exquisite Half Hunter Silver Pocket Watch Samuel Yeomans. Chester. Normally I hesitate to use the word mint, since to me that means it has its original box and papers. This watch has neither. On the other hand this watch has NO FLAWS (apart from some very minor surface scratches). This watch is hallmarked Chester 1898 and was made by Samuel Yeomans.

I cannot over emphasise how beautiful this watch is.

Excellent Condition Verge Pocket Watch Ja Burton Whitehaven w Silver Chain & fob

Excellent Condition Verge Pocket Watch Ja Burton Whitehaven with Silver Chain. Case marked WR. Date letter is a q in a shield.  This dates to 1814 , which is earlier than I thought but as you can see from the photo the mark is quite clear. All hallmarks match on both cases. Anchor mark is Birmingham. The watch has a diamond end stone which makes it particularly nice.

The chain is marked for Chester. The date letter is a curley D and dates from either 1729 or 1904. My guess is that it is the latter. The hallmarks are not clear however.
The fob is marked k in a box shape. Hence 1909. It is also marked Mayday 1910 Victor Campbell.
All in all a very nice package for the discerning collector.
