    THIS SLAVE IS INTERESTING IN THAT IT HAS UNIQUE FEATURES.
    I THINK THEY ARE AS FOLLOWS:
    JUMP 1/4 SECOND
    SECONDS BIT
    JUMP MINUTE
    SINGLE HOUR HAND
    MISSING GEARS FOR THE HOUR HAND FUNCTION AND THE CONNECTOR LINK FOR THE
    ACTUATION ARM. SHOULD BE FAIRLY EASY TO FABRICATE.
    IF ANYONE HAS ONE OF THESE SO I COULD GET SOME IDEA OF WHAT THE ACTUATOR
    ARM LINK LOOKS LIKE IT WOULD BE VERY HELPFUL IN THE RESTORATION.

    I believe it originally was meant to sit flat on the table with a dome.
    At some time in its life one section of the round bezel was removed to make it stand up but keeping the dome would not work
    with this arrangement.
    It appears that there was a name stamped into the metal work which has been completely destroyed with a punch.
    Threads are USA sizing and possibly made as a one off for a graduation project or some talented machinist just showing off. Just a guess.
