  • Catalogue Essay

    The present watch is fitted with polychrome cloisonné enamel dial depicting the Bombardment of Algiers in 1816. In an attempt to end slavery practices of the Dey of Algiers, Britain fought the Bombardment of Algiers in 1816 to free to Christian slaves and stop the practice of enslaving Europeans. Following the Bombardment, around 3000 slaves were freed and a treaty was signed against the slavery of Europeans.
    The present watch, numbered 3 of a limited edition of 25 pieces only, is a highly charismatic example presented in excellent overall condition.
