Historical pocket watch, gold and enamel

Gorgeous historical watch, high quality enameled gold case, verge escapement, circa 1780.  On the dial there is the slogan of Moreau de St Méry : "Il est toujours l'heure de faire le bien".

This watch was the property of Méderic Louis Elie Moreau de Saint-Méry (1750-1819), a great politician during the French Revolution of 1789. He had also discovered the grave of Christoph Colomb, and written a lot of books.
