Here's a minute repeating chronograph that recently crossed my bench that the owner was eager I shared. The watch was originally sold in the Chinese market by a dealer called 'Ullman'. The 'Concisas Brevitas' trademark that is mostly hidden under a hammer when the movement is together is that of the firm Meylan. On first glance it all looks par for the course for one of this type of movement but the speed regulating device for the repeat work is a little different from those usually seen. It is a horizontal fly as I would normally associate with a clock striking mechanism, driven by a worm wheel/pinion arrangement. The thrust of the end pivot of the worm is taken up by a polished steel end plate. It is quite silent in operation like the disc with pivoted weights more usually seen and perhaps has a packaging advantage in some ways. That there is a hole right though the plate means that they have painted/enamelled the back of the dial with gold in the area you can see so it is more pleasing to the eye rather than just seeing the murky counter enamel. Quite a pleasing arrangement to watch in action.
