Third-series half-plate movement (hunter set), the 16-size hollow-back frame with nicely finished keyless work. Double-roller detached lever escapement. Compensation balance, balance-spring with overcoil. Signed enamel dial, blued-steel hands. 42.5 mm diameter, 9 mm deep not including centre arbor.
Paul Philip Barraud and John Richard Lund, one of the leading London watch and chronometer manufacturers throughout the 19th century. See the book on Barraud and its Supplement by Cedric Jagger for extensive details of this important London firm, and also my reprint of their Illustrated Price List of circa 1895, which gives details of this calibre of ‘half-chronometer’ watch.
Dial chipped and cracked, balance pivot broken and slight dent in top plate, but worth the price for the hands alone. Not working.
