The movement is placed on a holder to start the disassembly.
I'll start with all the keyless works first.
Here on the left you see the brass splinter that holds the mainspring ratchet wheel from slipping out.
The characteristic Guye patented cap plate for the winding ratchet.
Here are the minute and hour wheels, with the winding ratchet, cap, and screws.
Underneath is another wheel, engaged by a sliding pinion, as in Swiss watches, that allows the setting of the time.
As you can see, the winding ratchet cap needs a good clean.
This is the intermediary winding gear, with screw and cap, all construction of these parts is extremely robust.
The bottom of the cap has a pin to secure it's position.
Here you can see where the intermediary gear went. It still has the hand etched compass mark to drill the hole.
Mainspring ratchet wheel. Also of robust construction, has a beautiful snailing finish.
The back is not finished in a particular manner, and has a punch mark to designate where the it should be located on the mainspring arbor (in relation to the fastening hole and splinter).
Last items to remove are the mainspring click and spring.
The beautiful talon (or bird) styled click, and the looped spring.
All screw ends are polished (see right hand screw).
Here is a detail of the 'right angle' escapement. Top left is the balance, then to the right is the escape lever and wheel.
Giving the components an initial clean.
The components of the dial side keyless works.
Now to the back of the movement.
3/4 plate is taken off.
The 3/4 plate screws are finished with a pointed end, which is the traditional way English pillar screws are finished (they screw onto the pillars holding the plate up).
View of the motion work. The gears are rather large for this size movement, and they most probably belong to a larger caliber watch.
Visible here in the escape wheel hairspring is the box shaped hairspring stud.
The single roller with round pin impulse jewel, both typical of English watches.
Here the balance bridge and its hand-engraved Victorian floral arabesques.
A view of the traditional English 2-level escapement, with the impulse lever on the bottom and pallet jewels on the top. The third wheel then engages on the bottom of the escape wheel.
Note how the right most pillar has been partially cut, this is to facilitate the 4th wheel, another sign that a larger caliber gear-train was used for this piece.
From the previous picture, the typical Guye stem. This is a combination of Swiss and English traditions. Essentially it is a Swiss pin-set but placed on the bottom of the mainplate, instead of on the dial side (see previous picture).
A view of the gear train before cleaning.
Escapement again. The iconic escapement bridge of English pieces, a curved bridge that masks the right angle escapement.
On the lever here, you can see the safety pin to prevent over-banking, in the typical English upright position (instead of protruding from the bottom as in the Swiss watches).
The top of the mainspring barrel, given a hand etched sunburst finish. Nearly 99% of English pocket watches don't have the mainspring barrel gilded. This one is not gilded.
And is left as a raw brass barrel. Here the Geneva safety stop. The squared mainspring arbor can be seen from the movement back.
A view of the center wheel, executed in the Swiss manner. English manufacturers normally have a two part center wheel with a removable center pinion.
Very robustly manufactured thrid wheel.
A similarly robustly made 4th wheel.
