1770 British Automaton watch at the Metropolitan Museum of Art, New York - From the curators' comments: "When activated, the eight rosettes, or stars, spin within the rotating frame on the dial of this watch, which is pavé-set with paste jewels. A number of these automata survive; they were incorporated into objects probably intended for export to both China and India, but they may also have been made for English patrons."
