• The day-going plated movement consists of going, alarm and striking trains. The going train is driven by a spring barrel via a gut fusee and has verge escapement with balance and hog's bristle regulation. This pre balance spring regulation has an adjustable arm carrying two hog's bristles positioned to bank the balance wheel spokes. It allowed finer adjustments of rate than were possible by altering the mainspring set-up. The striking train has a spring barrel and indicates the hour fully on one bell.
