Note: S/N24879016 has no jeweled barrel wheel or the 3
screws like the black and white drawing showing
this movement. However S/N24879016 does have the
barrel wheel main plate engraved 19j. And the
engravings are inlayed with gold. Also the
winding wheels do have fancy demaskeening like the
19j version with gold inlayed engraving. If
someone can say the barrel wheel can be jeweled
and the 3 screws are hidden under the barrel, or
the 19j are applied in a cap jewel version. Other
wise
S/N24879016 is different that the movement
diagramed in the line drawing.
