A large late 18th Century quarter repeating verge with calendar in silver pair cases.  Full plate fire gilt fusee movement with signed and numbered gilt dust cover pierced to reveal the index.  Pierced and engraved cock with garnet endstone in a blue steel setting, engraved foot and plate for the silver regulator disc.  Plain three arm gilt balance, blue steel spiral hairspring.  Push pendant quarter repeating on a bell in the back of the case.  Signed white enamel dial with central chapter for the date, Roman numerals, blue steel calendar hand, decorative gold beetle and poker hands.  Silver pair cases, pierced and engraved inner case, silver push pendant and bow, lateral blue steel slide to make the repeat “a toc”.  Plain silver outer case.

In excellent condition.  This series of repeating watches by Eardley Norton were commonly made without piercing the outer case.  Almost all the inner cases had a lip at their edge which supported it in the outer case rather than resting on the back.
