    Need yuor help in identifing pocket watch with repeater (?)

    Hi guys,
    Has anyone ever come across with such a movement? As far as I can see it's a repeater on board, isn't it? If it's true, on you opinion, what parts are missing?

    How would you set the alarm on it?

    It can't be an alarm since the isn't an extra hand to set the alarm time. If it isn't a repeater, it should be a sonnerie. I would still stay well away since there appear to be parts defective or missing and replacing them on a movement that old yet that complicated will quickly become very expensive.

    In general I 100% concur
    That said, I never saw Enrico incorrect hence I ask his re-confirmation

    Thanks, gentlemen. I've postponed the purchase till all the things get clear. BTW, the owner asks 150usd for it... The watch is in good working condition except its "musical" abilities.

    It's an alarm watch . It's missing the intermediate setting wheel with the cam to release the hammer. The Wheel that's overlapping the edge of the case is the setting wheel for the alarm . The ledge on the lip of the bezel is used to stand the watch up .
