George Etherington London fusee
This is a very old pair cased, verge fusee made by George Etherington London. The outer case is covered with green sharkskin (Shagreen) and is made of gold, the inner case is made of gilded bronze. This watch was in very poor condition when we received it, most of it’s steel parts such as the springs and screws were all but rusted off. A few of the many repairs that movement needed and we performed were a new center wheel made, new bushings, two new pivots re-pivoted, we made a few springs and several screws replaced. We then removed the scratches and dents from the inner case and plated it with 14k gold. The dial was cleaned and we repainted the markers to make it beautiful again. The outer case was sent to a gentleman in Australia to have the sharkskin (shagreen) on the bezel repaired. The watch now looks and runs wonderful, it was keeping time to within 30 seconds or so a day, not bad for a watch over 300 years old!
