Montfort 01

52 views

19 3/4”’ | Hand Wind | Pin Lever | No Seconds |

Remarks:

  • 01 is not an official caliber designation, but an assignment from the book by Eduard C. Saluz: Stiftanker-Taschenuhren aus Deutschland (2019) (Pin lever pocket watches from Germany)
  • Crown collar integrated directly into the movement
  • Press the crown to set the hands
  • Open barrel
  • There is also a Montfort 02 caliber
  • Montfort 01 and 02 cannot always be clearly differentiated. The most reliable criterion seems to be the barrel bridge. On the Montfort 01 it is made of brass and is ornate, while the Montfort 02 has a simpler barrel bridge made of pressed steel.
  • The Montfort 01 is not only available with the cut-off plate shown here, but also with a complete plate
