Here it is, in its " bed " of corks. And in all its beauty. Thanks to my business partner Julie to have let me play with it for some days.

The reason I ask is that I am considering to buy a 4940 for myself but I would like to avoid any unpleasant surprises when I getting a 15-20 year old watch with an A. Schild base caliber serviced. I don't have any experience with calibers by that company ...

Hi Nicolas, I was under the impression that one had to wind the second lower crown for the alarm to get its power and not the main crown. So, the power comes from a second mainspring and not the automatic mainspring ....? This version is a nice one. Any i...
