$13,734.32

About

This is a delicately gilded watch. Designed in the Louis XVI style, it is a very similar barometer. Originating from France in the 18th century, this watch gives the viewer an extremely retro and antique feel. The overall look of the watch gives us a sense of harmony that stands out from the large white enamel dial that stands out from the gold background. In addition, the watch face is also covered by a transparent glass to protect the watch face, which can be opened and closed depending on each person's preferences. The inside is glazed to give a luxurious and attractive look. With a very unique design, the enameled dial has both roman and normal numbers. Roman numerals represent hours and ordinary numbers represent minutes. Double-ended movement with anchor escapement and steel suspension. Especially on the top of the watch is a trophy symbolizing hope, a symmetrical victory flanked by two beautiful small trees, creating accents for the watch. The round watch body is surrounded by two tree branches “Acanthus Leaf” that embrace the face of the watch. Underneath the body are small beautiful flower motifs with a little French classical direction. At the bottom of the watch body is a girl's face with a rose ring on her head and braids on both sides. Symmetrically, two tree branches “Acanthus Leaf” radiate on both sides of the watch, creating a very unique highlight for the watch.
