    ...Information Appreciated...From Vintage Pocket Watch Experts…

    I was looking for something else, when I came across these four 1700’/1800’s pocket watches.

    I don’t remember even having them to be honest. And, I don’t know much about them.

    The David Taylor London watch is only one of the few examples known to exist (dealer who had one’s advertising), and very little is know about David Taylor the watchmaker, other than the fact that he worked for John Ellicott, and Thomas Mudge, and from what I read he did their finest work (from what I could find).

    I can’t find anything about O’Rielly, who apparently was a watchmaker in Dublin Ireland…The watch is nicely done, with a Coat Of Arms, hand engraved.

    The Park Pocket Watch apparently was made in Frasersburgh Scotland, at least that was the only town that matched the spelling. The hand engraving is superb.

    The unmarked one is another finely made British Pocket Watch (I think). I wish I knew something about this maker. The raised cutout work is superb.

    I personally think that these watches were made at the height of British Watch Making.

    If any of you know anything about these pocket watches, any information would be greatly appreciated.

    Regards,

    John

    Augh! Too many photos in one post and too confusing for us senior citizens to make sense of.
    How about you try again with one post per watch. :thanks
    I don't think they are all 18th century watches. A couple look like verges and a couple look like English levers. We do have some UK pocket watch experts who might be able to help.
