This is a Verge pocket watch.
Its construction and parts are very similar to a clock. Modern watch are not made this way.
Made in Canterbury
Mr A Monti
Its hard to imagine Canterbury at the time this watch was made, Stevenson's Rocket was undergoing trials and most people felt that there limbs would be ripped off if 30 mph was exceeded.
Robert Peel started the first police force in London this very year
As a time keeper its not good
But just look its great.
I must confess that this is a bit of a luxury I found it on ebay and just had to have it I spent more than I should but I just love it.
I blame Mr Don Bugden
Sadly he is no longer with us
He introduced me to this type of watch thirty years ago,
