    Hi everyone,
    can someone help me to recognize the manufacture of this deadbeat seconds independent pocket watch?

    Thanks

    I have two tandem wind seconde morts that are similar to yours. One is by Louis Audemars. The other has a somewhat different movement. It is signed by Perrenoud, but I haven't identified its maker. I don't think it was Louis Audemars. See C.J & A. Perrenoud Foudroyante Seconde Mort, or Is It Really a Louis Audemars?.

    You watch's movement is somewhat different from both of mine, but I am pretty sure it is a Louis Audemars. I found a nearly identical movement in the Zantke monograph on Louis Audemars. Your movement has slightly different winding wheels and there are a few other minor differences, but the two movements are very similar.

    Thank so much for your help. The scan you attached it's very close to that one. As you say it's possible mine is later due the design of the ratchet/winding wheels?
    I'm gona to read the other post too, I'm curious.

    Thanks again!
