I guess you get to compare your siblings next time you and Doc meet... 

great find! Your case is slightly different and the movement looks

as if it was made a few years after Doc's since Doc's has gilt finish and yours looks rhodium plated.

What's the diameter? 33mm?

Hi Alex, diameter is 30 mms as Doc's watch. The Doc's movement is number 419032, mine is 418591; so close in production time i suppose. It is funny to see that the main bridge, escapement wheel and balance wheel are pretty identic, but in the opposite way on both. Out of records : you will see it this evening !!. Best regards. Patrice.

No mine is not gilt finished, it's the lamplight :-) (nt)
