Note: This movement is described as a lever set in the
data base according to the movement number, but it
seems it was convered to a pendant set before it
left the factory. My research indicates that this
happened from time to time to accommodate the
public's wants-jg
Curator Response: Thanks for the report. It is not likely "converted" to a pendant-set at the factory. Rather, there is likely a small batch of pendant-set grade movements. Please upload images of your watch so it can be evaluated further.
