    And now for something completely different.

    I might get slated for posting this here but it has some interest, perhaps,
    to the pocketwatch collector.

    A Georgian Verge Full hunter perhaps....



    Not quite



    A pocket compass from C1800, but the cross over of skills from producing
    a pocket watch to this realm of the scientific instrument maker is
    interesting.
    The dial is enamel on copper as in watches of this time, the dial is
    hand painted and shows the art of the dial painter applied to something
    other than clocks and watches ...and the case was probably made by a
    case maker more used to producing cases for watches I suppose.

    That is very interesting. I never considered the cross-over but I know auction houses like Southerbys often do watches and scientific instruments together.

    Very nice! I have a couple of British made instruments, altimeter/barometer. They also look a lot like a pocketwatch.
