The very first pocket watches, since their creation in the 16th century, up until the third quarter of the 19th century, had key-wind and key-set movements. A watch key was necessary to wind the watch and to set the time.

A functional, exceptional find, this sweet little key is a beautiful 19th century example. Possibly French, there is some damage to the enamel and top bit of the key, and it has been lovingly priced with this in mind.
