The nickel drum shaped case has shaped posts screwed to the front and back, a shuttered back, a glass tube that protects the movement, a ring to the top and small ball feet.
The white porcelain dial has Roman numerals for the hours, steel-cut spade hands and a heavy beveled glass.
The small circular high-quality fusee 8-day time only movement is wound and set off the backplate, has screwed posts and is stamped on the back, ‘Brevete-Red-Paris’, ”25′ and ‘3’. The unusual lever escapement is mounted horizontally on top, has a screwed-bimetallic balance wheel and a two-plane anchor that engages with a heavy vertically oriented escapewheel.
The unusual case, escapement and use of a fusee make this a really interesting piece of horology.
