Take a guess

oooh that poor watch.
Wild ... guess - LeCoultre ebauche finished by Agassiz? (Am I cheating by including two guesses in one? ... probably both wrong ).
Hmmm... Ulysse Nardin?
I know right? I have a ton of "artifacts" from Ball.
lol. yes, I have a lot of Ball "artifacts" for study, that I have acquired.. that will never likely keep time again.
Holy Crap Enrico! I have followed your posts for a long time. you sir, are some kind of Savant/Genius. I never ever expected anyone to get this answer. This is so obscure. Dude. R E S P E C T !
thanks Jeff you are very kind.
what was the clue?
the mainspring bridge.
Jules Monard was in Geneva on Route de Malagnou 156, always addressed to the American market, where he was represented by Albert Wittnauer. Gold medal at the 1900 Geneva and Paris National Exposition. The trademark was registered in 1896
Hi Enrico and Geff, I need your help. Today I was given two watch movements (see below) and has you know, I know little about European watches. The one on the left I think is a clock watch, French by looks with a fusee verge escapement. No name on either watch, but this French watch is numbered 576, both watches run, but not all functions work. The one on the right is called a chronograph repeater I think, made for the English speaking world, Advance & Retard plus fast and slow..Can you help?
the verge is one of the most recent, it can be seen from the rounded balance bridge and the absence of the repeater barrel, which in the older models was visible.
the other is a LePhare OC model
Thank you enrico, first-class as always.
