Swiss pivoted detent chronometer pocket watch movement only, 46.4mm dial diameter. Good running order, good escapement function, lacking only fourth wheel pivot for seconds. M26 Description: Swiss pivoted detent chronometer pocket watch movement only, 46.4mm dial diameter, key-wind key-set, original white enamel single-sunk dial now with new dial feet replaced by yours truly (the originals broken off), fully capped pivoted detent chronometer escapement, 19 jewels, gold cap settings, electrum (gold & silver mixed) gilt movement, s#17040 over-stamped to 17044 under dial, back of dial with matching etched #17040. The seconds hand pivot is broken off, which probably happened at the same time the dial feet were broken or directly as a result. One will need to re-pivot the fourth wheel in order to carry a seconds hand.
Examined by yours truly, a specialist in antique and vintage watches since 1971: Good running order, good escapement function, lacking only the pivot to carry the seconds hand, excellent movement condition overall, hardly any microfine scratches, light tarnish arising from the silver in the gilding solution; such tarnish can be removed quickly in silver cleaning, prior to cleaning the watch components; dial has small chip in the seconds dial, and hairline running up past 11; alignment of the seconds hole is perfect; hands are new mint period hands which I added, being of matching plum color but not quite the right length. Please note the order of grading terms - Pristine - Mint - Excellent - Fine - Fair - Poor. All Descriptions Guaranteed, 14-Day Return Privilege.
