Debugging completed, wood sub base surround finished, final photography and videography finished, NAWCC Zoom presentation.             October 2021

In recognition of the completion of the project two detailed video montages as well as photos for future articles in the NAWCC Bulletin are included in this installment. The front and rear cover issue of the September Horological Journal featured an eight page article, and an additional three-part series is being published in the Bulletin beginning with the current November/December issue and explores what has been documented since the last article that appeared in the March/April 2017 issue.

The two dual Wagner gravity driven remontoire can be traced up from the pair of hanging weight on the lower left section of the photo. Note in this photo and the one below that some wheels are made from pink bronze. All of the wheels in the three main trains mounted to the lower flat bed frame were made from bronze to provide color contrast.

This machine has nearly every type of wheel ever used in horology.
