This exceptionally rare minute repeater pocket watch by the celebrated firm of Charles Frodsham is a specimen of precision timekeeping. The spectacular timepiece boasts a minute repeater, which, at the push of a button, chimes the hours, quarter hours and minutes using a variety of notes and tones. Requiring hundreds of hours just to assemble, this feature is considered as the apex of horological complications.

The complex piece is further set apart by its built-in split-second chronograph, which includes not one, but two stopwatches with a progressive minute register. Housed in a handsome 18K yellow gold case, this open-face watch indicates the time on a beautiful enamel dial with Roman and Arabic numerals.

The Frodsham firm began business in 1834 and quickly became known for their exceptional quality products, with many notable clients - including much of the British Royal family as well as American banker J. Pierpont Morgan. The firm was once responsible for the maintenance of the British Royal clocks and was the last independent clockmaker permitted to have workshops in Buckingham Palace. Today, Charles Frodsham & Co. Ltd. retains its Royal Warrant and is celebrated as the finest and oldest continually trading chronometer manufacturer in the world.

Marked "Cha. Frodsham" and "HMF" for Harrison Mill Frodsham
