Gild brass verge watch, signed G. Ferlite. This watch has calendar indications, hour striking and an alarm. The gilded-brass case has an integral back and hinged lid. The band is pierced and engraved with a scrolling foliate design. Around the pendant is a radiating pattern similar to a sun-burst. In the middle of the back is an engraved flower, possibly a seeded rose. The pendant is badly corroded and the ring is missing. The case has suffered severe damage and in many areas the gilding has been worn off to reveal the underlying brass. At the top is a chapter ring with Roman hour numerals. Part of the Cheapside hoard.
