Make sure to check out my other auctions after you look at this one. I’m listing an eclectic selection of mechanical, technological and musical antiques, and I suspect there will be something to interest just about everyone. Here’s a gorgeous, century-old Echappement Roskopf “Goliath” pocket watch. The watch picks up a few minutes a day, but it’s in excellent working order overall, and it runs quite reliably. Features an ornate silver case with prominent relief artwork and a stunning dial with emerald green enamel hourly accents arranged in what can best be described as a moire pattern (see pics). Movement is clean, and the case is pristine. Small amount of wear on the dial face in the area of 7 o’clock. Stem winds mainspring easily, and it has an excellent mechanical “feel” as it’s being turned. Time is set by depressing button adjacent to stem. And yes, there’s a reason this watch is known as the Goliath. It’s almost 3 in diameter. Has a hinged back that can be fixed at 80 degrees, so the watch can be set vertically on a tabletop or shelf. This is truly a special piece. The watch folds up neatly, looks beautiful from any angle, and fits comfortably in the palm of your hand. And the best part — it still works. That’s about it. I will pack it carefully and properly. The item “1895 Echappement Roskopf Goliath Pocket Watch With Emerald Green Enamel Dial” is in sale since Sunday, November 15, 2015. This item is in the category “Jewelry & Watches\Watches\Pocket Watches\Antique”. The seller is “firebottles” and is located in Chapel Hill, North Carolina. This item can be shipped worldwide.
