Round pocket watch with a rather unusual dial. The dial is a pale yellow in colour with Arabic numerals in gold on circular green background. The numerals are arranged in an elliptical manner. There are only two hands - the hour hand and minute hand. This is a mechanical hand-wound watch. On left and right of the dial are decorations in the form of flowers and leaves. At the base of the dial is a transverse bridge which supports the balance wheel and escapement. On the dial is printed: "Hebdomas Patent 8 Days Swiss Made". The crown is located at 12 o'clock and has a metal ring around it to attach onto a chain. The caseback flips open to reveal an 8-day movement. The language is in French and states: "Ancre 8 Jours Spiral Breguet Levées Visibles Interchangeabilite Garatie Depose". In the centre it says: "8 Days Swiss Made".
