Description

Within the Museum's Robert Lehman Collection magnificent collection is a gold and enamel pocket watch made in Paris about 1650. The decoration of this elaborately jeweled watch includes a depiction of the young Louis XIV (16381715) on horseback, and a miniature with the arms of France and Navarre and the Orders of Saint Michael and the Holy Spirit. It was presumably made for the young king, and is one of the most important surviving watches of its period. The face of this rare timepiece features a pastoral scene of the idyllic French countryside, which weve adapted for our elegant watch.

18K gold overlay. Genuine leather band. Quartz movement. Case: 1 1/2'' diam.; band: adjusts from 6'' to 7 3/4''L.
