Pocket watch: a Museum and the only known Abraham Colomby Gold/enamel Spindeluhr with associated enamel Chatelaine, the former aristocratic, Geneva, about 1750. Approx 40mm, approx. 62g, 18K Gold, double case, jewelry stones, enamel magnifying glass paintings, ladies portrait, inner casing, smooth, case maker-hallmark, G&R, No. 10418, identical to the plant number, early Geneva, spindle factory with the preload on the worm screw, signed and numbered, original, signed enamel dial in very good condition, fancy hand made of silver, studded with stones (some stones missing), functional, and in an exceptionally good state of preservation; the corresponding Chatelaine, probably made of silver, with jewelry stone trim, extremely rare version with 4 other enamel plaques, with women's portraits, to match the enamel plaque of the watch, Chatelaine fitted with a key, and a signet, also with stone trim. The crown on the Chatelaine suggests a noble possession. Very similar to the gold mail-spindle pocket watches of Abraham Colomby are in the Victoria & Albert Museum in London and the Rijksmuseum Amsterdam. The watch in this embodiment is a Museum rarity. A further Abrham Colomby with Chatelaine is located in the Cinquantenaire Museum in Brussels (source:https://www.cortrie.EN/go/Nq8).
