19th Century Swiss 14kt Gold ‘Audemars Fréres’ Double Hunter Pocket Watch – Quarter Repeater.

A 14 Karat Gold Swiss pocket watch repeater that chimes (repeats the hour) when the side button is pressed.  It is a quarter repeater, that when the hour of the chime is heard, it also double strikes once when it is between the hour and 1/4 after, double strikes twice when it is between 1/4 hour and 1/2 hour etc …….  The Swiss company is “Audemars Freres” based in Geneva.  The white enamel face features black roman numerals and also shows a seconds hand.

Repeaters are much rarer than other normal pocket watches.  The President –  Franklin D. Roosevelt owned an Audemars Fréres repeater and it recently sold for 1.45 million US Dollars! (fun fact).

Marked on face:  “Audemars Fréres Brassus & Geneve”.  Marked 14k on back case and front case.  Interior 3rd case is gold filled and shows the company’s logo and medals of honours – since 1811.

Excellent working condition.
