The quarter train sounding on a pair of graduated gongs positioned on a T-shaped bracket behind the movement, followed by the hour train sounding the last hour on a larger gong.


One piece enamel dial with original ‘blued’ steel hands signed ‘August Tasche in Wein’ surrounded by a decorative gilded bezel.


Original four spoke brass pulley wheel and small brass cased weight.
