Note: 15 jewels
Curator Response: I looked at the photo in the eBay listing for this watch. The "15 Jewels" stamped on the barrel bridge appears to have been added at a later time since it is not consistent with the other markings on the movement. If possibile, please remove the dial and confirm/refute the 15 jewel count, and we will update accordingly.
