The movement is very complex for a single train. Total parts count for the movement without electrical switch gear is 310, with pendulum and back board support 353, with switch gear 523. Each clock was individually made since all parts are individually marked with the same number "3".

The first two photos show the remontoire and it's cage. Notice the large ruby jewel on the cage arbor where the remontoire locking arm meets the remontoire cam. In 1886 clock makers had to use real jewels, so these, while large do contain many inclusions. Still they look beautiful under a light. The third photo shows damascene on the maintaining power spring, the forth again the escape pallet jewels and the finely made escape wheel. The fifth photo shows the typical high pinion count found throughout the movement, while the sixth depicts the complex, adjustable remontoire fly fan assembly. The last photo shows the  computer I use to document my disassembly and re-assembly procedures.  Prior to this one would have to use drawings, later film photography with it's uncertainty until the pictures were developed. Now pictures are taken, downloaded and viewed in real-time.
