Pocket Watch – K.D. Sykes – Ancoats – Manchester – 1862

16 Sep


This is a solid silver slow-beat pocket watch made by K.D. Sykes of 156 Great Ancoats Street in 1862.


The watch is known as an English Fusee pocket watch, so named because of the cone shaped component of the watch. The slow-beat refers to half seconds rather than the standard 1 second increments of modern watches.

The pinions of ten refers to the pinion which is a round gear and the ten is the amount of revolutions before the little hand moves.
