Recently purchased in America, it's an interesting front wind verge fusee. We have received expert advise that this is a later version of a pocket watch by Jonh (sic) Ward, Fort Street, London No2682 John Ward was listed as working in FORE St London between the years 1784 - 1799. It is thought that this was assembled in the late 1800's, not of the 1790's era. In working order, winds nicely, ticking very slowly though, and not tested for accuracy of time, so will need at least a service or at worst a repair, has sat idle for years. The Sterling Silver case has no hallmarks, but does have s serial number 3216 & a makers mark VD and is possibly American in origin. Dial has a few cracks, missing minute hand, no glass. The outer case approx 66mm in diameter & the inner case 51mm in diameter. Sold without a key.
