Barillet-type, cylinder escapement, release of the musical work by the tiny button on the edge of the housing, enamel dial, red gold hands, in good condition, good sound, and functional. Music works with roller, mainly used for music boxes, since you need a lot more volume than the horizontal plants, which are commonly found in pocket watches.
