Nicely decorated gilt movement, too. 

Here, used in a Mathey Tissot " Type XX " with its dust cover:

a beauty for sure. Just thinking out loud… Isn't it very uncommon and does it not defy logic to have a Côtes de Genève finish with a gilt mise-en-couleur? Do you know of more examples? Do you think this might be an afterthought? I mean not original to the...
