A quadruple cased pocket watch by Edward Prior

Clock of the Week – Quadruple Cased Pocket Watch

This week a very rare quadruple cased pocket watch by the eminent Edward Prior (1800 – 1868) 

I have restored and worked on a number of Edward Prior watches in the past. But have only ever seen one other quadruple cased ottoman style pocket watch, and the quality of this one is simply outstanding. 

The three inner cases are hallmarked London 1828 and the outer Clam shell is no marked. After some research, the custom was to export the triple cased watch to Turkey and then the outer forth case was manufactured in Turkey before retailing.

The fusee verge movement has been fully restored by me and is in an amazing condition showing little wear for its years of age! The “ottoman” style porcelain dial is in perfect condition displaying the makers name and Arabic style numerals.
