Gents pocket watch movement, Philip Towzel, 1810.
White enamel hunter dial has black roman numerals and an inner dial of arabic numerals. Key wound spring; rack lever escapement. Scale fast to slow.
One of several watch movements donated by Ingram Brothers jewelers in 1937. During the 1930s Depression, customers would bring in gold or silver fob watches to sell for the value of the gold or silver. Ingrams (and other jewelers) melted down the cases to sell the metal, but kept the movements of historically interesting watches.
Donation from J. Ingram, 18/02/1937
Back plate has ornate foliage dial and is marked 'Philip Towzel, 1810, Patent'.
