This is a really interesting watch and shows how watchmakers were changing the way they made and designed watches.  This is an electric watch. It is powered by a battery instead of using a main-spring however the watch timing is still controlled by using a conventional balance wheel. I don’t know the history of these types of movements but I am guessing they are the precursor to quartz movements. 

This watch was kindly donated to me by a fellow watch enthusiast as he thought I would appreciate it as the design is still very retro.
