LARGE HEAVY balance and has a very wide cut between the cut balance separation points. 35 tooth esc. wheel; no 4th wheel; pivoted roller on balance; under sprung. No. 3629

Small and thick, 33 mm size mov't; very heavy and thick regulator arm and with a very flat porcelain dial.

Very unusual and superb.

Note: some examples read "Improved Rolling Detached Lever" on the dust cap which refers to a single-roller detached lever escapement, the roller of Brookhouse's design with a pivoted steel roller.

(My example is missing the dust cap)

Cost all of $10. from David Schwartz (old timer) in 1966 on July 15th.

Hi Jon, a really nice movement, but you need to purchase a good Digital Camera. Very hard to make out the details of the movement. Regards Ray
