Reasons Plate

Here is a closeup of the reasons plate that bears Piquet’s signature and shop location. The count wheel for the strike mechanism is visible, with the numbers 1 through 12 inscribed in its outer ring.

Note: The rear top brass bridge is an addition done when the movement was converted from the original crown foliot escapement to a Brocot escapement. It is estimated that this was done between 1820-1830.
