Hi,

I have this time only Gustav Becker and wondering what this small brass hand attached to an roman numeral chapter ring. It travels at the same rate as the hour hand.

Thanks for you help

The "Roman numeral chapter ring" is an alarm disc. The extra hand seems to have something to do with that and thus would seem to be involved in setting or triggering the alarm. However, I've never seen such an arrangement, so I wait for others more versed in Becker than I.

Perhaps pictures of the insides, i.e., the movement would help.

This is certainly later addition. The quality, Roman "IV" instead IIII deny GB factory product.
