If anyone can provide me with the model name of this Gilbert crystal regulator, I would be very grateful. (It's probably not difficult to determine for someone who has the right resources, but I don't have any information available on the topic.) The model is a particular favorite of mine, with its rich decoration. The photo is not mine, and I do not own one of these, but I'm looking for one and I think it would help to have the model name.

interesting:the winding arbors are relatively close to one another and don´t touch the chapter ring like in other american crystal regulators I´ve seen.This could mean that either Gilbert had a special tiny mvmt. for these or that a french mvmt. is hiding behind the dial.Can You post some more pics,especialy of the movement and the escape section?

Gilbert's crystal regulators generally had winding arbors spaced as shown on Brandt's. There were a few exceptions. The ones I've seen do not suggest French.
