Slim barred going-barrel movement jewelled to the centre, with plunge-operated repeating work striking on two polished steel square gongs, the frame stamped 102 and P. Jewelled cylinder (English pattern) escapement, steel escape. Plain balance with Breguet-style compensation-curb mounted on the index. 48 mm diameter.
NB: Continuing the pioneering work of Jean-Antoine Lepine, the repeating watches by Breguet took to using this style of movement in the 1800’s. Others soon followed and it became one of the most successful slim repeating movements of the period, sold bearing a great variety of retailers names, many of which would have been on the dial and/or cuvette.
Lacking dial and hands, and in rather dusty condition. Otherwise looking to be complete and with nothing broken, but the going and repeat trains gummed up with dried oil. Sold as needing at least a service and fresh oil to work correctly.
