Strange Balance Endstone Holder

Recommended Posts

Hello,

Has anyone ever seen an endstone held like this before?  My first guess was this is an early shock resistant system, but it's only on one side of the watch and looks to be firmly held in place.  It's pretty, but not sure why it's different from other examples of this same caliber (AS341) I have and have seen.

Thanks!

At first glance I thought it was a Cymaflex but on closer examination it looks like its too rigidly mounted. The cymaflex is mounted on a single screw and has some play.

This looks like a non-shock absorber with the the cap jewel retainer offset instead of down the middle of the cock.

In case anyone is looking for the datasheet for this movement series, I managed to get a copy finally after 3 months of looking from a swiss museum.  So excited to finally have something on this lovely old movement!
