Notes

It is very unusual to find a that time these 2 complications: independent dead seconds in which the movement has two trains, one conventional, and the second with a sweep-seconds hand which can be stopped without stopping the main train (invented by Moise Pouzait in 1776) activated by push-piece located on the case band at 7 o'clock and a quarter repeater mechanism activated by a slide on the band at 3 o'clock.
