To me Gene it definately looks like it is for the Chinese market, and yes there is a good chance it is a duplex movement. If you look at the escape wheel you will be able to tell immediately, I cannot see good enough with the photo of the movement to tell.

Best Regards,
Bila

Yes , another example of an early (< 1850) duplex watch with a beautiful case. (handle with care). Are there any hallmarks or inscriptions ?

Just a few things to spot on:
-five spoked plain steel balance with a broad rim
-diamond endstone
-just few windings on the hairspring
-stopworks on the mainspring barrel
-low jewel count(the times were jeweling just started and here a sign of early production)
-old fashioned (hand filed) screws.
-over and over again the case.

few negatives:
-missing center seconds hand
-the right shoulder of the gentleman on the enamel painting must bave taken a hard punch.

Regards
Gerald
