Additional Information

I love the patina on this dial. Unfortunately, the watch is not running. With my limited knowledge, it appears to be something jiggy with the connection of the balance and the pallet to the escape wheel.  I believe this is a Duo-Wind “G”. The caseback shows L1 but the movement has L2. I would love to keep and wear this beauty, yet I can’t fix it. I would rather pass it on to someone who can repair it themselves or have the watch repaired.

1952 Duo Wind G looks to be a good match. I agree about the Patina.  Just love the salmon color patina on watches.    It appears to be missing the hairspring or at least I cannot see one in the picture.  Also the rotor clip does not seem to be original which could explain the loose rotor or it could be a broken rotor pinion.  Overall I think the watch movement is clean and very fixable.

It appears the only difference between Duo-Wind "F" and "G" is the band. "F" on leather and "G" on expansion.

I will go "G" if you promise to mount it on an expansion band :o)
