The musical watches are very interesting and rare. Most of them were produced in the beginning of the 19th century.

These watches don't just tell the time, they also play music every hour or on demand, which was really exciting at that time ! Unfortunately, models in working condition are difficult to find nowadays.

I will present you 3 musical watches.


1. This one has a classic silver case.

Great watches, great pictures and videos! Thank you!
I especially like the last one because it is built so the repeater system can be seen without removing the dial!
Do you have any idea when the Breguet & Fils signature has been engraved? When it was brand new by the (cheatty) watchmaker who made it, or later by a scoundrel?

The signature has been engraved when the watch has been manufactured, there were lots of fake Breguet in the 19th century.

I would somehow like to point out the use of the term "fake Breguet" in the XIX th century context.

This is not really as we know it nowadays, some Chinese low quality stuff with a fake logo printed on it !

The so called "fake Breguet" were very often pocket watches manufactured by ANYHOW WHO had a shareholder named "Breguet" into its company' statutes.

This means particularly that if your patronymus was this (precious) Breguet name, whichever you were a watchmaker or not, some (sneaky) watchmakers proposed you to entry into their company' shareholders in order to allow such company to be lawfully called "Breguet".

This is as simple as that ... and this is one of the reason why real Breguet manufactured watches wore a duly registered serial number.
