Gold half-quarter repeater watch by Brockbanks. The four-coloured gold hunter case has chiselled floral ornament (a steel nib moves sideways to open the cover over the dial). The gold cuvette has complicated engine-turning and is stamped WI. The gold dial has a subsidiary seconds dial and gold wavy hands. The centre is engine-turned and covered with translucent red enamel. The hour ring is enamelled grey-blue.
The movement has a spring detent escapement, free-sprung helical spring and three-arm compensation balance with sliding weights each clamped by two tangential screws. The half-quarter repeater strikes on three gongs.
