Mini onion
Thick like a common onion, but already showing the trend to small watches. After Baillie, records about N. Burnett exist up to 1762. Maybe, the movement never looked better than now, M0 thus. Also the handcrafted inner case will never have looked substantially different, except the poorly repaired pendant (but this can be easily fixed). If you don't expect to high accuracy, you still can use this little machine today.
