1800's French Gousset Watch (7894)

  • $75.00

These were often given as Wedding Gifts in the 1800's. It has the name 'O. Hafoner' beautifully engraved inside its rear cover. 

Also engraved inside are the words: Remontoire 10 Rubis Ruol. Brand Kahla. Remontoire refers to the watch being stem wound. Rubis refers to the use of Ruby bearings. Avance Retard is engraved in tiny letters inside the clock mechanism; French for Faster, Slower.

The watch winds--but does not appear to be working.

It measures 45mm in diameter.
