Swiss-lever movements normally have the singature RAX under the balance, but some also RL like the pin levers.
Not all variants were actually made. Only those are listed, which are actually known or contained in current registers.

Operating instruction
Crown at 2h: Usual function for setting and winding.
Crown at 4h: Turn right to wind the alarm barrel, turn left to set the alarm time. When pulled, the crown is disengaged to prevent changing the alarm time by accident.
