Dial & Crystal
Porcelain enamel sub-seconds dial is in nr. mint condition and has black Roman Numerals with seconds markers around the outside edge (for chronograph). Original 'Louis XIV' style gilt hands are in mint condition. Dial is unsigned. Original glass crystals are in excellent condition with only one or two light marks on each (hardly noticeable unless under close scrutiny).
High quality, jewel lever movement is also unsigned but most likely LePhare manufactured. The movement has recently been serviced and is in very good working order with the repeating mechanism functioning correctly and showing no letheragy or 'slow-down' even when operated at 12:45. Chronograph function is also in perfect working order stopping, starting and resetting exactly to 12 o'clock.
