Swiss Musical Pocket Watch With Music Box Automaton Reuge
SWISS MUSICAL POCKET WATCH Heavily God Plated Music Box Alarm Watch 4 Automaton Movements Original Box & Papers. Here's a wonderful example of an increasingly hard-to-find Swiss musical watch. As you can see, it is an engraved, "hunting case" design, and it is heavily gold-plated to 10 microns. This comes with the original boxes, papers and an added gold-plated watch fob. To begin with, the Arnex-Reuge 17-jewel clock movement, top-wound, also has an alarm function setting. This will activate the music box inside at the time of your choice. The small music box inside, also a Reuge specialty, plays a delightful song ("Oh What A Wonderful Morning") and is wound by using a key at the rear and can also be manually activated by using a small button near where the key is wound. The piece-de-resistance of this special watch is the 4-movement automaton scene at the front, known as "The Hunstman's Rest", whereby a hunter, showing his prowess by waving his bird kill to a lovely maiden, who is pumping water from a well.
The horse is nodding his head, drinking from the fountain, which simulates real water flow. We will also include the original instructions in several languages. CONDITION: This is in excellent, fully working condition, the clock & alarm settings work as intended, the music plays well, and the automatons are fully functional.
