I got an Glycine with the early automatic movement from 1931.
Bellow is information about it that I found in Glycine site.
Around 1931, he presented to the world market a well-functioning self-winding watch, entirely of his own invention, a sensational performance that, for lack of capital, could not be exploited commercially. Some of these GLYCINE Eugène Meylan SA self-winding watches can still be found in the collectors' market.
That is great! It is hard to tell: what actually turns?
i imagine that the hammer is located within the circular housing.
Looks like the winding mechanism (hammer?) is located over the balance in the second picture. I guess it just banged back and forth like the bumper wind automatics without the aid of a bumper mechanism ?
The patent was deposed on oct 24th 1930
