hey guys, ok so i bought this curious quarter repeater online from the depths of ebay and after weeks of looking for similarities between first this and the fakes of the time period (pre 1850, due to it being a keywind i assume) and i dont get anything near the quality or the craftsmanship of this 42.53mm by 4.1mm masterpiece, im not sure who made this watch but after a google search the only manufacturer that stands out is VC and breguet.
now i know the chances of me getting a real vc or breguet or any true antique swiss quarter repeater for what i paid are slim to none but please id love it if someone could help or point me the way to go or even solve this mystery .
The works are no doubt Gilt and the edges of every steel bar under the dial are chambfered (i think thats how you spell that) and the watch is still ticking. there is an arbor at either the 4 ocklock off center and a nother at 11? then a push button at 2ocklock that when pressed moves an arm under the dial. please let me know any info on this watch even if is somethinglike its not complete. thank you for your help as always
Edit: i forgot to mention the sound resonance from this watch is incredible unlike anything i have ever heard in person
