I picked up this Vincenti recently, it has had a tough life but I think we're almost there. Clipclock told me how to heat up the bezel to install the beveled face glass (worked great) and more time than I care to admit to cleaning and it's running pretty true. I'm going to have some glass cut for the front panel, it seems to have been broken long ago. It has the silver medal 1855 stamp, but I'm posting because it also has "69" stamped at the bottom of the movement. Could this be the year of manufacture? I know there is not a lot of info on Vincenti so maybe this will help in dating his stuff. There is no "made in France" stamp so I'm figuring it is in line with the 1869 date. I haven't found another example of this style of case after much searching, if anyone has a thought on what type of decoration would have been found on the top of the case and bottom corners I'd appreciate it. I wouldn't be fussed if I can't find them, imo the French went a bit overboard on bling, but it might be nice to return to original. As an aside, boy are these French movements fussy to get going (for a new guy). Fiddle and get it going on the test stand, great. Install in case on work bench and have to do more fiddling, great it's working. Move clock to final resting place and it needs more fiddling to get going. It's running well now though and I don't think I'll move it again, it weighs almost 40 pounds, I guess the French figured heavier was better.
