An early 20th Century miniature Swiss lever in a gold pendant watch in the form of a half hunter.  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. Plain gilt dial with blue steel hands.  Very small engine turned 18 carat open face case in the form of a half hunter watch.  Broad front bezel with blue enamel Arabic numerals.  Engine turned clip on back set with a light blue sapphire.  Gold bow shaped pendant also set with light blue sapphires.
A rare watch due to its very small size.  Movements of this diameter only become more common later in the 20th Century.
