This recent purchase without competition indicates that in my territory fine pocketwatch buyers are increasingly fading away. 2+ oz. of 14k did not boost the cost compared to 2/3 cheaper gold. It came from a professional well aware of collector values who does very well on ebay who honestly prices favorably for me, but cannot afford to not make some profit. Anyway I was pleased he made it very agreeably available because it really is a substantial nice quality extra large one for the desireable 16 size. This a brilliantly colored one. Not all are. As usual photos have deficiencies in showing natural color. The movement is from 1896. Right age but not original. Has the best plate decoration called Lacework not clear in photo.
