Fitted with Abbot patent - I have not tried to wind or set it. The lever set works only when the dial is lifted slightly off the movt.The numbers on the Cock, Balance, and Hour Wheel all match those on the movt. The is a broken screw on the Gold Dome of the cap jewel of the balance. The escutcheon (keyguard) is satin when it should be High gloss. The ratchet under it is missing. The wheel train and the pallet bridge are all Gold. I was told this grade should have the glass enamel 3-line dial, but there were some that had the single line script dial. This dial is in very good condition with some small hairlines.
The seconds disk has been shellacked in place. The movement plates are not bright but one can still see the straight line damaskeening on it.This is unusual as most of these has the fishscale type damaskeening. There are scratches, staining, and one gouge below the serial #. Only the hour hand is original. The minute and second hand are replacements.
