I'm more familiar with American pocket watches, but had to have this one when I saw it. (Lust at first sight?) It has become a massively intriguing riddle in itself for me. French or Swiss, recased (improperly), key wind, dual time, dual train, pare-chute, possibly dead beat seconds, and much more I hope to learn when it arrives. Until then, I've been studying the only photos I have and with my meager knowledge and experience, I simply can't tell for sure what type escapement it has. The picture isn't great, but I'm hoping someone can help me figure out: 1 - specifics of the escapement? 2 - why these watches are refered to as "Captain's" watches? (is there a history, or particular usage, or a niche market, these were designed to cater to?) THANKS in advance for any insights and information!
