It is signed Ganthony (Richard Pinfold), London. It has a Large diamond end-stone and is Key Wound on the back and and Key Set on the Dial.
The Fusee Lever Movement, bearing sn 2032 is in very good cosmetic and working condition and the plunge repeater mechanism works very accurately, when sounding the gongs.

Richard Ganthony died in 1845 and this watch dates to around 1830. It was cased in 1873 and incorrectly given sn 2052, an obvious error of interpretation of the movement number.
