Charles Stone was a Liverpool watchmaker who apprenticed under his father Chas, circa 1795 London. This watch is hallmarked for 1833 (K) and is a less expensive verge not having a seconds bit. One can still see the artistic penchant for English watch makers to include artwork in their balance cocks (bird). This watch is about 7 jewels with a Bosley style regulator, gilt plates, pair case with an antique bulls eye crystal. The watch is about 19 lignes or a 17size watch, weighing about 127 grams. The case is stamped with TS for case maker Thomas Spicer of Birmingham, England. Charles Stone retired in the early 1840's as a watchmaker.
