Serial Number 1178966 was reported as inaccurate.

Note: I also own Sn1178966. It also is pendant set.
Not a lever set. There for is not a railroad
grade watch. Also, 8 adjustments. No
Isochronism adjustment engraved in the movement.
And just for the record. I would call this a
bridge plated movement.

Curator Response: 8 Adjustments: 5 Positions + 1 Isochronism + 1 Heat + 1 Cold
