Hi John- While searching for more of this type of watch I came across No. 6078. It would appear they got their photographs mixed up, take a good look at photograph No. 4. Also, notice the compensation weights, they are exactly like yours. The confusion for me is the hallmark, they say it is 1845. Still looking for more. Allan
