Hi guys,
Has anyone ever come across with such a movement? As far as I can see it's a repeater on board, isn't it? If it's true, on you opinion, what parts are missing?

Oh, I see... Thanks Enrico, you just saved me from a rash spontaneous purchase.

It can't be an alarm since the isn't an extra hand to set the alarm time. If it isn't a repeater, it should be a sonnerie. I would still stay well away since there appear to be parts defective or missing and replacing them on a movement that old yet that complicated will quickly become very expensive.

In general I 100% concur
That said, I never saw Enrico incorrect hence I ask his re-confirmation

Thanks, gentlemen. I've postponed the purchase till all the things get clear. BTW, the owner asks 150usd for it... The watch is in good working condition except its "musical" abilities.

It's an alarm watch . It's missing the intermediate setting wheel with the cam to release the hammer. The Wheel that's overlapping the edge of the case is the setting wheel for the alarm . The ledge on the lip of the bezel is used to stand the watch up .

Thank you for exhaustive explanation, gentlemen. The matter is settled.

Most of these had a +/- 5 min slop in the alarm activation . If the missing wheel were there you would see that it has a high tooth count . You can also see that the amount of slide on the hammer release would prevent it from being spot on .

No, that's not really what I meant. In the absence of any alarm hand, dial (or even movement) side, I am confused about how the owner would know even remotely when the thing would go off once set.

Nice pic Adam ! There is a cam on the underside of the indicating wheel . It has a notch that coincides with the hand , the two halfs of the wheel turn together when the cam meets the beak , it releases the hammer ( at the lower left hand side of the photo )
