Does anyone recognize this movement?
i thought it would be fun to restore just to educate myself about a movement I have never seen before
but it has stumped me as to how it functions and what is the correct wiring.
The verge crutch looks to have been set up for either a mercury pendulum shaft or a round pendulum stick.
It is 120 beat.

I don't recognize it but I like it. I see that the behind the dial gears are gone, do you have them? It looks like it is weight driven. If you actuate the armature above the coil by hand, does that lift the little weight? I suspect it dose. When the weight is down, then what? are there a set of contacts some where that close when it runs down.. Looking at your second picture, there appears to be a post on the right that is isolated from the frame. This could be one half of a "wind" contact.

I have all the motion works gearing.
I have restored hundreds of battery electric clocks of all types and understand the various methods used to make them function.
This one is a mystery and even though it appears to have all the necessary wiring there is no means to kick the weight up to
provide the motive power. Perhaps someone had it apart previously and there are parts missing.
