An early 20th Century miniature Swiss lever in a diamond set gold open face case.  Nickelled split three quarter plate keyless movement with going barrel. Plain cock with polished steel regulator, uncut bimetallic balance with spiral hairspring. Club foot lever escapement. Silvered dial signed “Udall Ballou”, Arabic numerals, blue steel hands. Miniature 14 carat open face case, the broad front bezel set with twelve diamonds, four larger ones marking the quarters.  Clip on back with engraved monogram.
A rare watch due to its very small size.  Movements of this diameter only become more common later in the 20th Century.
