    Welcome to Watchuseek! I fear it will be difficult to say a little more about this watch since there are several entries for "Summit" in Mikrolisk. One is associated with the Record Dreadnought company, the best known and most prestigious option. However, to be sure where it's from, we would need to see the movement, I'm afraid.

    Now that is weird! For a start, it's not really a Record movement (at most, it might be a Record adaptation of a generic base calibre). Secondly, I am 95% certain that it's a fanciful adaptation of this Adolf Schild calibre:

    bidfun-db Archiv: Uhrwerke: AS 984

    The "first stage conversion" to central seconds looks like this:

    bidfun-db Archiv: Uhrwerke: AS 1007

    We seem to be dealing with a "second stage conversion" in which the same principle of diverting the subseconds at 6:00 is applied but the whole setup is hidden under a second bridge rather than being exposed. In addition, the movement has an uncommon sort of shock proofing. I wonder who adapted it.....

    Yup, possibly an Antichoc 51 system?
