This handsome gold pocket watch by D. Borgeat, Geneva is an exemplary specimen of superior Swiss workmanship. Ornately engraved 18K yellow gold encases the timepiece, which tells the time on a silver dial engraved with elaborate gilt decoration in a foliate and scroll motif. Blued steel hands point to Roman and Arabic numerals, and a subsidiary seconds dial sits at 6 o'clock. Boasting a minute repeater, this watch chimes the time at the push of a button with supreme accuracy.
