High grade 18k gold 1/4 quarter repeater pocket watch! Slide repeater operating on two gongs. It has a nice clear sound. Here is a video of the watch in operation on Youtube.The movement has a cylinder escapement which I dont think is common for a keyless winding repeater watch. It has nicely polished steel parts and is obviously a high quality watch. Keeping good time - not quartz time but very good for an antique watch. I believe the case is 18k due to the French Eagle hallmark. The watch runs and the repeater operates correctly. There are one or two little dings in the case - one on the back cover - shallow and one on the dust cover - more of a ping. Also with an autograph or signature type name engraved on the back cover. There was a famous or wealthy Walter Schroeder but unsure if this was his. The dial is slip or friction fit. Lacharme Paris - I think the retailer. As you can see there is some type of maker mark on the movement on the pillar plate. But Id have to dismantle it more to have a chance at identifying. Hinges are good and covers close tightly. There is a mark on an inside case cover - SG with a key symbol. Research indicates this is the case maker mark and from Besançon France. The underside of the dial has a ZJ. The case has a serial no. Please research to see if that is the case for where you live. The item "Interesting French high grade 18k gold 1/4 quarter repeater pocket watch" is in sale since Wednesday, August 14, 2019.
