A beautifully engraved antique 18ct gold Ladies pocket watch in excellent working condition

Stamped 18K and with the head of Helvetia this has been professionally cleaned and polished and looks fabulous

Swiss hallmarks from 1880

The Swiss Precious Metals Control Act of 23 December 1880 introduced a uniform system of hallmarking for watch cases to be used throughout Switzerland with the 18ct mark being that if Helvetia.

These hallmarks are seen on the vast majority of Swiss watches with silver or gold cases imported to the UK between 1880 and 1907 before assay and hallmarking of the cases of imported watches in a British assay office became compulsory.

Swiss hallmarks do not indicate dates. Items marked with the symbols introduced in December 1880 were obviously marked after that date. The marks of Helvetia are seen on Swiss watches with 18ct gold cases imported to the UK between 1880 and 1907.

Measures 31mm in diameter and comes in the antique watch box shown
