Product Description

A beautiful 9ct rolled gold Swiss pocket watch in excellent working order, holding time well, with white porcelain Arabic numeral watch face marked with the retailer Samuel Edgcumbe ,Plymouth.

This piece is engraved internally ‘To Father from William’ 8.10.40. The case itself is manufactured by the renowned watchcase maker Dennison with the number of 293099 on the outer case shell along with ‘English Make This Case Guaranteed to wear 10 years 293099 -40’ ( the 40 being the year of manufacture)on the inner case protecting the internal watch mechanism. The porcelain face is in very good condition & aside from a small discolouration near the number 7 appears to be in excellent order whilst the case has a small amount of marking consistent with use & age where it has been opened & stored.

The internal watch mechanism is marked as 15 jewels Swiss made with the manufacturer DF&C being the Marque Depose - Dimier Freres et Cie. The watch winds smoothly and has a wonderful movement to it - this watch is a keyless top winder. DF&C were the two sons of Antoine Dimier of Geneva, Charles- Louis (1822-1896) and Auguste-Antoine (1824-1891), formed an association in 1848. The brothers graduated from the Collège de Genève and were then initiated into the art of watchmaking in a factory at Chaux-de- Fonds. About 1846 they set up a business in Fleurier, where Auguste Dimier managed the manufacture of “Chinese” watches while Charles Dimier became the sales director, leaving at about the same time for Canton, where he founded the commercial firm of Dimier & Cie, with a special Chinese trademark pronounced Tien Ye. Business came to a complete halt in 1860 because of the war in China and Charles returned to Switzerland, where in 1862 he and his brother left Fleurier for Geneva."
