Fabricated in argent dore, an alloy of silver with a content of gold; the case has front and side surfaces decorated in a linear guilloché. Etymologically, the term guilloché has obscure origins but whether it's used in architecture or the decorative arts, it consists of series of repetitive and interlocking patterns. The delicate geometric sequences are cut into the silver using a sophisticated wheel turning engine, which on this piece, has then been covered in a pale blue enamel with gold star and petal filigree incorporated beneath the vitreous surface.
Complete with leather bound travelling case; centrally opening and held shut with a clasp, once opened each door bears the gold embossed signature of, Asprey, 6 Bond Street,London, below a crown signifying the company's Royal warrant first issued by Queen Victoria in 1862. With the clock removed from the case it is possible to pull the central panel down, thus revealing the original key which winds and sets the hands.
