Here is my Dimetron Super Flat. This is a Swiss watch with a EB8800 pin lever escape movement.  This was in a large job lot of old watches I bought and was also a surprise find.  I really like the font used for the numbers and lettering. The watch was not running and on inspection the hair spring was out of centricity.  I have never been very good at hair spring adjustment but I had nothing to lose so gave it an hour of tweaking.  finally got it looking good and fitted it back in  and to my surprise and relief the movement started to run again.  It is now keeping reasonable time for an old pin lever. 

As with all these pin pallet escapements they are very noisy on the wrist.
