Comments about the data

pin-lever escapement
ratchet on dial side, crown mechanism with rocker bar
balance versions: staff with slot, single roller, double roller
The distance between balance bearings is adjusted either by the common screwed point bearing on the dial side (cf. AHS 40), or more sensitive and service-friendly by a screw bending the balance cock or -bridge (Fig.1).
Late samples have a balance bridge instead of a cock, and are signed on the dial side as AHS 42. It is not yet known, which variants were made with this layout.
Often a wrong or no calibre signature is present.
