empressissi™ is pleased to offer this fantastic, well preserved large and strong running giant pocket watch, made in Switzerland around 1900 in a category known among collectors as 'Goliath pocket watches'.
The watch houses an early Swiss large gilt finish movement. It appears to be based on an enlarged FHF 19 caliber, it is a 24 hours movement - crown wind/pinset caliber running on 15 jewels. The movement is running strong, keeping good time.
The movement is cased in an elegant and large 0.800 continental silver and is marked including the internal dust cover with Swiss hallmarks. The back shows a locomotive scenery and the case is in overall very nice condition for its age with a free bow and original onion crown.
The dial is a real jewel - factory original enamel in several tones with gold inlaid flowers and exterior 24 hrs register, fantastic condition with no damage and has an original set of huge Louis XIV style hands
This huge and impressive Goliath pocket watch measures 76mm side to side (excluding crown). It is shown in the last image with a Swiss 37mm round (about 6-size) pocket watch for reference (The smaller watch is not included).
