    I think it's an early form of shock protection...

    Early form of shock proofing - as early as 1909? Well, Breguet had been there about 100 years earlier, I suppose.....

    True 1790 to be precise
    But why is it so shocking - many others offered shock protection - albeit I agree 1909 is early

    Was this "commercially" used???

    Of course - that is the point of the bottom photos. The question of course is when.

    Quite common at the time on the more mass production watches.

    A Schild Cal 210 (I think - though maybe it is a 110)
