Good lord, that is exquisite! What is the vintage on that? It looks to be late 1700's, which is an exceptional engineering feat back then! The dial and the balance cock are especially beautiful. What repairs does it need?

How they managed to manufacture the tiny chains and other components (and with such precision) before modern machines is what always impresses me.

Brilliant watch, very 'SQEEEE'. Keep us posted!
And is the balance wheel bent, or am I missing something?
