Bahne Bonniksen (BB) - inventor of the Karrusel - the escapement carriage revolves in an anti-clockwise direction once every 52.5 minutes. This rotating Karrusel helped to cancel out the effects that gravity had on the escapement and made the movement very accurate at maintaining time keeping. Karrusel pocket watches scored highly at Kew observatory trials. Condition - please study the photographs, but my notes on the movement are as follows: The balance is loose with a broken staff, the dial is perfect with no cracks or chips. Some oxidisation visible on the minute hand as well as under the dial.
The movement in general looks in "good" condition considering its age. The movement came from an ex-Jewellers collection which looks to have been untouched for at least a generation with the most "recent" item in the collection of movements and jewelery being from the 1930s. My guess is that nearly 100 years ago this watch was removed from its case, the case scrapped and the movement has not seen the light of day until now.
Movement measures 45.8mm on the dial side and 43.3mm on the reverse side approximately. Please contact me if you have any further questions about this item.
