Behind a 3 3/4" diameter, white enamel 'bowed' dial with black Roman numerals, minute ring and Arabic fifteen minute marks. Also having very finely executed, pierced and decorated matching gilt hands, a typical early coned hand collet and a well-cast ornate ormolu bezel.

The ormolu mounts to the case still have their original mercurial 'Fire gilding' which is in extremely good condition. All the marble is of solid construction with a reeded concave top, gadrooned lower portion and circular splayed pedestal.
