Reynolds and Wiggins were in partnership between 1865 and 1869. The first year of the partnership their address was 16 John Street, Minories (East London), before moving to Tower Hill. Known as "nautical opticians", their movements were purchased from chronometer makers without acknowledging the makers name on the instrument. While not manufacturers, they carried a stock of chronometers, checking the rate of each and safely delivering the instruments on-board ship. This movement is the Thomas Mercer standard 2 day movement with the Earnshaw spring detent escapement.

Silvered dial numbered 3607 with solid gold hands. Original brass-bound mahogany case with a single tier lid fitted with a bevilled glass spray cover with key. The face is the slightly smaller 4 3/4 inch diameter typical of the earlier movements.

Original gilt laquer finish.
