Good chronometer in thick hunter 14k gold case. The movement equipped with spring detent escapement with helical hairspring. Big cut and compensated balance wheel with golden screws. It features swan neck micrometric regulator, all wheels are finished with nice gold chatons. It's made of solid nickel, nicely finished and is protected with glass crystal.
The covers are bears Swiss hallmarks for 14k gold and Russian pre-1917 zolotnik's hallmarks. Dust cover is signed with just "Chronometre" and numbered, unfortunately no other information. The ebauche is obvious Swiss, and I believe the movement was also finished in Switzerland. There were a number of decent chronometers built on same ebauche.
It was used by Dent, Huguenin, Lequin-Yersin, Wilhelm Schochlin, and I believe many other good chronometrists. Condition The watch is in quite good condition. The case is thick and heavy, solidly made. Total weight is 130 grams. As usual with quality chronometers, the watch is bigger than average.Diameter is 55 mm, height without bow is 72 mm. Condition Watch appears to be in good condition. Movement is running as it should. Case is in ok condition, with minor wear. It's hallmarked for 18k gold, dust cover is also gold and is hallmarked. Dial seems to be free from defects. Video will open in a new window. I can accept payments in euros within EU.
