Movement
The spring-driven, eight-day movement of this very small Swiss clock is constructed between plates. It consists of going train only, with lever escapement on a platform, mounted across the plates. It can be regulated at the back of the clock. The backplate is numbered 104687.

Dial
The circular enamelled dial is set in a blue, enamelled mask decorated with flowers and has an Arabic chapter ring with five-minute and gold dots for the minute divisions. The time is indicated by a pair of blued-steel hands; the hour hand is spade-shaped. The dial is protected by circular glass set in a silver bezel.

Case
The arched and waisted silver case of this small clock has been engine-turned and is covered with translucent blue enamel on a guilloche engraved ground. There is a silver-framed door at the back. The case rests on four silver bun feet.
