    ISO: Age/Info on Antique English Verge Fusee

    ISO: Age/Info on Antique English Verge Fusee, movement marked "John Verow Hinkley", appears he was a watchmaker in Hinkley (now Hinckley) and this is probably from 1795, maybe. Also marked on Movement "No 202" at least it looks that way. Case has hallmarks as follows: HH {anchor.. {b.. {lion..; these same hallmarks are on the outer shell/case too. This case is 45mm diameter, thickness of 22.5 (domed flat-top bullseye crystal), outer shell/case is 53mm diameter.

    Hi there,

    you can look up the hallmarks here:

    Yours indicate Birmingham (anchor) and 1799 (b with matching font and shield), i.e. your estimation after the style was pretty precise for such an age.

    Regards, Roland Ranfft
