    Picked up another english watch, This time its not a fusee, but a going barrel. This one is very accurate after i cleaned and regulated it. Cannot find much info on the maker though. This one is scribed "Foggs Patent". i looked it up and it seems to be a feature for when the mainspring breaks. This one looks like a waltham and has a solid gold balance. S/N doesnt match the case. its also a verry loud ticker, i like it, plus its big and heavy!

    Your watch IS a Waltham. It is listed in the database as a model 1857 - Martyn Square, which is a model intended for export. The barrel bridge differs from the typical model '57 on these export models.

    So, this makes it an export Waltham sold by Thomas Moore of Derby. All that I was able to find out about him is that he was active between 1855 and 1876.

    This watch was made in February 1876, so apparently sold at the end of his career.
