A Family VC

Hello,

Some pics from this week-end.

I do not know much about this pocket from a great grandfather but a very nice watch.

There was a chain and a small cushion, but no way to get your hands on it.

A very nice enamel dial, a few turns of crowns, magic, she turns.

There is a very fine engraving "Genève"

The "balancier" is much slower, a sign of low frequency. Blue Spiral Breguet.

Thanks for posting .  That is a very interesting box...does it have any markings?  The watch case is also unusual, without the typical V&C cuvette engravings.  Can you share pics of the case markings?  Without checking the numbers, it appears to be circa 1880-1890?
