A most unusual watch which clearly demonstrates Prest's skill and creativity, its refinement has led to the suggestion that Prest may have worked for Breguet early in his career (see op. cit. p.447). Depressing the pusher in the pendant splits the seconds hands within the large subsidiary dial, this stops one of the seconds hands whilst the other continues to run; when the pusher is released, the second hand that is static flies back to join the running hand. A difference of 25 seconds may be measured before an arm on which one end of the spring to which the seconds hand is attached engages a pin to the underside of the plate to prevent the spring from being overwound.
