    A cheap watch within the mid of the 19'th century

    My personal interest as ou might know is the beginning of the "industrial" continental pocket watch and of course Zenith. Therefore I always look on markets after early Lepines and I guess you understand that this watch without glas, 5 cm diameter a mismatching minute hand and less than 1 cm height caught my eye.

    In between I organzed a new glas and it doesn't look really like a lepine anymore with this high domed one. You're right its a very simple continental verge. No stones, no engravings, no gold beyond the cock, no finish of the columns

    I was really surprised. I thought in this aera (prob. 1850/60) a watch was so exclusive that some hours of work for a nice finish are not significant for the price. Has anyone an idea what has been he custumers target group for such a watch with obsolete technic and without any decoration and finish. The case is quite thin silver.

    Kind regards Silke
