AH Arnold & FH Huguenin 30 Minute Recording Chronograph Pocket Watch Movement. Please see photographs for condition -the pictures form an important part of the description.
The last picture of the listing is a photograph taken of the patent for this movement by AH Arnold & FH Huguenin who patented the mechanism on May 3rd 1883. The movement does have two problems - setting the time is proving an issue.When the keyless winding push piece is pressed down, the time cannot be set, it sounds as though the gears are not marrying up correctly. The other issue is with the 30 minute recording section - this works most of the time and jumps each minute when the chronograph hand reaches 12 to start a new minute, but then other times it doesn't do anything at all, then other times it tries to jump forward but then goes back to the position it started in. I believe to a competent watchmaker, although these issues seem big, they won't actually be that problematic. The watch winds and ticks away happily without any problems. After running for 3 hours, it appears to lose about 25 seconds of time, so adjustment is required. Two very minor issues are the small hairline crack in the dial centre and the hands - the minute hand has lost its blued steel effect and the hour hand at some point has been replaced with a gold one. It was well stored when discovered. The main chronograph sweep second function is working - when the crown/stem are pressed down it starts the function, when pressed again the function stops and then when pressed a 3rd time it resets to 12. The reverse side of the movement measures 41.93mm approx, the dial is 45.22mm approx and the thickness is 10.5mm approx. Please contact me with any questions you may have.
