The July Revolution of 1830, also called July Days, is an insurrection that brought Louis-Philippe to the throne of France. The revolution was precipitated by Charles X’s publication (July 26) of restrictive ordinances contrary to the spirit of the Charter of 1814. Protests and demonstrations were followed by three days of fighting (July 27–29), the abdication of Charles X (August 2), and the proclamation of Louis-Philippe as “king of the French” (August 9).

Interesting how what is being commemorated with watches has changed over time. Then it was political - now it's auto racing :)

Very nice...thanks for sharing.

Excuse my lack of knowledge on pocketwatches...but who makes this? I'm assuming it's French.

The watch is not signed so it is impossible to know the maker unfortunately...
