Serial Number 10513914 was reported as inaccurate.

Note: This movement does have a wind indicator, it’s
in an open face case but the original dial has the
wind indicator at the 9:00 position and the sub
seconds dial at the 3:00 position. The dial
appears to be an original porcelain factory dial
as well.
Curator Response: Thanks for the report. This information has been noted in the research notes for this run.
