Watch Makers

I wanted to share this movement. For those who like alarm complications this clock has one of the best along with two independent mainspring barrels. It also has time and beat regulation via hairspring & balance.

Wow! Thank you so much.

The alarm bell is the case itself I think.

Here we is the wearable part. Note the teeth on the brass gear for the winding works that holds back the mainspring for the alarm. It has dual mainsprings. They are blued and use an arbor just like watches.

That's certainly how it is with travel alarms and I see no external bell. My guess is that the striker is visible from the other side.

Do you think it should be painted, or show patina, or remove paint and polish the metal?

There is a sleeve and pull for the alarm pull on the back that I am missing. I did get a chance to work on pinning a hairspring for the balance. The regulation / timing of the balance is accomplished by manipulating tension on the hairspring as well. I apologize ize if I am preaching to the choir.
