    This is a superb example of a Welsh pair case verge from Anglesey . Finding Welsh pocket watches is hard enough but this one bears a Keep Me Clean dial, which in themselves are scarce

    The watch has clear hallmarks for Birmingham 1822

    Movement – the gilt full plate verge movement has cylindrical pillars, a fusee chain, a verge escapement and a beautifully pierced and engraved watch cock decorated with a grotesque face. The movement also has a blue steel regulator and is signed “David Jones, Amlwch” 6420. The movement is in 95% mint condition

    Inner case – the movement comes in an inner case, which has a hinged bezel and the watch is wound from the back, set from the front and is accessed from the front also. The case has its original stem and bow. The back is engraved with initials JW. It has a smooth plain finish and is in 85% mint condition – a superb example but there is one deep bruise on the side
