Well I finally got a camera that wasn't just the one in my phone and, despite clearly needing to work on the lighting in the photos, wanted to post these ones. S/N 3815077 was made about 1888-89, 15j and is pendant set while S/N 4380585 was made about 1890-91, 15j and is lever set. I did change the hands to the time zone ones and it's now in a salesman case. The one it was in when I purchased it was worn through to the brass and had screw marks from another movement. S/N 4380585, I just purchased and it had a rather big chip in the dial down to the plate and the entire "35" marking is gone. I know these aren't exactly common but, hopefully I can eventually find more. I really like how they look, I just wish there was more information about them floating around.
