It was built by Charles Hahn, who later became Landeron, a patent of Auguste Gentil issued in 1897 was used. The patent number ( ch14358) is not reported, so this movement was built at least ten years after 1897

The star with the D is Durrstein's Monopol brand a German signature, the mark on the left is the German hallmark (Full Moon, Corona) which identifies gold, below the two Swiss hallmarks ( squirrel) for 14 K gold.

One small and mainly irrelevant detail, it is called crown and sun for German gold, according to the relevant order of 1886, see attached.

Cheers, Bernhard

What a great write up, too! Thanks for sharing it, and well done, Doug!!

Seeing the setting works, low sn and barrel, could this be from mid/late 1890s? The Durrstein mark was in place by 1887. Chs Hahn & Cie formed in 1889 out of Hanni Freres. Their first movement deposit (27 models) was in 1893, so certainly after that. By end of 1896 they’d deposited more than 60 distinct movement models, none of which I can see.

Here is a Hahn under-dial in 1903. Since becoming visible, the barrels have a large center screw, not an arbor.

And here is a close deposit for Yzprint1’s, from 1906. Usually, I’d say it’s “the” deposit. But to my eyes, it is an evolution, not a precursor. Hoping to learn more from those who’ve seen lots of these.
