177-4174 Pendant watch: miniature rock crystal crucifix pendant watch, probably South German around 1700
Ca. 51 × 30mm, ca. 47g, rock crystal case, gilt mountings, early verge movement with fragments of a stackfreed (incomplete), splendidly engraved dial with silver hour ring and presumably original hands, unsigned, not in working order. Provenance: English private collection/ Koller auctions Zurich. The watch is very similar to a well-known early crucifix pendant watch, signed Nicolaus Schmidt Augsburg and almost identical (source: https://www.cortrie.de/go/M2b). We assume that this watch may be a true-to-original replica of this Augsburg Renaissance watch, but from the time around 1700!
