    This automatic watch, sold by the Perpetual Selfwinding Watch Co. of New York, was produced by the firm of Frey & Co. in Biel around 1935 and functioned with a 'pendulum' winding in one direction.

    THE PERPETUAL AUTOMATIC - Pendulum Winding

    The basic movement was a small formed movement without a hand-winding mechanism, surrounded by the automatic component in the form of a frame. The winding click, mounted on the pendulum on a spring, provided protection against over-winding by a clutch device. The pendulum's 'swing' was not limited by buffers. but by pins, and a loud clicking was heard while winding. In some models (like this one), the hand setting crown was located on the left side by the numeral 9.

      Very cool, looks clean inside. Does it still run?

      Evening Perry, I don't know if it runs, but knowing George, I'd bet it does.

      @ Perry & Kerry : Considering I have had theses automatic watches since the early-mid 90s and have never ever serviced them (couldn't find a watch guy that I trust), most of the pieces still ticks when I manually trigger the auto-wind motion to the watch (they cannot be just wind up like a 'normal' watch)! The movements have not been oiled for decades so I didn't want to push my luck to test the time keeping!
