The tool is in dream condition. This tool is used to determine the length of the Hairspring when exchanging it (for pocket and wrist watches, with a frequency of 18000 an hour). The tool is made of two parts, on the bottom there is a precision balance and a grappler on the top. The motion frequency for testing can be altered. The grappler is a bit like tweezers which can also be put in different positions. Even though these tools have been made around the 1900’s they are still being used by watchmakers nowadays. This antique tool is absolutely beautiful and very decorative, an absolute stunner and eye catcher for decoration in a watch shop or a real highlight for a collector. The tool comes in it’s original box. This is an opportunity for anyone interested in rare and special watchmaking tools, I myself have only seldom encountered these and never in such great condition. If you want to see the tool in action you can watch a video here. Please check my other auctions. The item “E.
