Condition Report

The case has some minor shrinkage cracks to the side and a few minor cosmetic chips to the veneer.

The movement winds freely and runs (no guarantee of accuracy or reliability)

The movement has been recently cleaned by its look.

The chiming train winds freely and chimes the hours but would need regulating to correspond to the indicated hour and number of strikes.

The movement is fitted with an anchor escapement.

The movement is fitted with a pull repeat

but the case doesn't seem to have been drilled for the cord repeat.

Here below is a short video of the escape running without a pendulum
