    Hi,
    Either that is the case serial number or an INcorrect movement number as 7,858,862 dates to 1896 = No way

    It is using what we call a 'Lepine' movement (Open face pocket watch movement) in a wristwatch case, putting crown and '12' at 12 and sub seconds at '6'.
    Usually we see the crown and '12' at '3' oclock.
