This is a stunningly beautiful Swiss made Bonheur pocket watch with exposed balance wheel and a fancy dial made circa 1895 and assembled in France.
16 size, (meaning the movement measures 1.700" in diameter), stem wind and stem set and double plateau.
The beautiful case is gold filled, rather than the typical gun metal and measures approximately 50mm in width. The handsome dial has blue enamel and gold inlaid markers with Arabic numerals. The hands are filigree gold Louis XIV. The crystal is glass and seems to be in excellent condition. The watch's movement is a straight-line lever, 7 jewel, with the exposed balance visible through the dial.
