1860s 18K Yellow Gold & Enamel Bautte Geneve, Portrait & Seascape Pocket Watch
Stunning Bautte Geneve N.67579 18K yellow gold and enamel portrait pocket watch in excellent condition. One of the finest you are likely to see. Stunning and fancy solid 18k yellow gold case is in excellent, still crisp original condition and appears to have seen little use. Amazing multi-color enamel portrait on the case lid and seascape on the case back (minor enamel restoration appears to have happened at some point where the waves are in the seascape). Extremely crisp engraving and engine turning. Base metal inner dust cover. Tight hinges throughout. Original mint solid gold dial and original hands. High-grade Bautte Geneva 13 jewel movement is running strong and keeping reasonable time although its service history is unknown.
