**NOTICE THE BIG SWEEP WHEEL THAT ALLOWS A CENTER SWEEP SECONDS. This 1942 transformation of an ORIGINAL FIRST RUN SUB-SECOND HAND MOVEMENT to a movement with central sweep second hand was accomplished by adding a new pinion bridge that attached to the mainspring bridge. A large wheel was added that powered a sweep seconds pinion gear designed to operate from the sub-sconds wheel through to a center pinion and wheel powering the sweep seconds hand.
