Superb workmanship...has the hard edge of machine work though, not the softness of VC's hand polishing.

How about this one...

I was plesantly surprised by this movement considering the brand is only a shadow of it's former self.  Did I leave enough clues in the picture?

I don't think so as PP normally uses a column wheel cover cap (nt)

oops, my comment was re the movement Tick-Talk's posted and which I

thought was the same PP movement KCC had posted. I still think the PP caliber finish could definately be better whereas the UN finish is rather sloppy.

same movement in the 2 scans? the 1st one looks as if it has a

rotor whereas the 2nd looks as if it i manual wind.

The finish looks a bit rough (screw heads, colum wheel etc...)

UN-38 Monopusher by Jacquet, although designed by F.P. Journe

Not impressed.

I would have preferred blued screwheads,

and a general better finish,

this looks quite simple to me,

whoever it is.
