The watchmakers Gondolo & Labouriau ordered only most elaborated watches. The literature states the following features as typical: Gilt movement, cam disc regulator, cap jewels on escapement-wheel- and lever bearings, gold train, and the square hole in the barrel pinion for simply unwinding the spring. These famous watches were available from the small ladies size up tu this huge watch.
However, this very early model doesn't follow the literature completely: It is not gilt and has noe fine-regulator. Moreover the name of the partner Labouriau is still missing.
