Look at what I found on the Online Galleries website!
The circular drum-shaped case has half-baluster pillars to the glazed band which allows sight of the movement from all sides. The case is surmounted by a ring handle and resting on toupie feet.
The 8-day movement has circular plates, chain fusee with only 10 turns, and a rare dual plane escapement with bimetallic compensated balance and silvered platform. The escape wheel is acting in the vertical plane, the pallets operate in the horizontal plane - the practical effect of this is that it is acting like a pin-wheel escapement. The backplate is stamped R.E.D. BREVETÉ PARIS 99F.
The perfect 3-inch white enamel Roman dial has blued steel spade hands.
