Great... and tomorrow is busy

I suspect I will make time!  Especially with a teaser like that.

Twin barrels, remontoir

d'egalitè, surely a chronometer. Sounds like a lot of tech-fun!

Can't wait for the rest :-)

A monopusher in the stem for a chronograph, and is that a slider button for a repeater mechanism, although I don't see any hammers. Everything else is hidden.

There is also a pointer above the balance wheel for adjusting it, but what unique design!.

Maybe it's just a chrono perpetual.

I'll be baaaaack! cheeky

My pedestrian eyes saw it as something much simpler

I saw the pin at the 11 o'clock position (when looking at the face of the watch) as an old pendant-wind, pin-set system.  Where one pushes down the pin in while turning the pendant in order to set the time.

I did wonder what the mono pusher was for as the movement doesn't seem to show any chronograph or trip minute-repeater functions.  But then I looked more carefully at the picture and think that the pusher opens the back case in order to view that beautifully sophisticated movement.  Just like a hunter-case, but opening the back instead of the front.

A watch type that both Tick-Talk and I are fascinated by :-) (nt)

I think I know what this surprise is...or maybe I am wrong. But I did see

some pics on a decently well known social network, actually pics of more than one pocket watch that seemed to make me speechless.

But like a good Lounger, I will wait...:-)
