Response to From Pellaton to Magic Lever: auto-winding by excentric pawls...
I've not found that statement in any of my research yet [see my latest response on your other post]... are you claiming the "identicality" based on:
1. your own observation of the actual movements?
2. a statement you found online (or some printed source)?
3. or are you using "identical" when you can only prove "similar"??
I'm not trying to give you hard time ... it's just that I've been trying to "nail down" the connection & find some definitive statements/diagrams/etc. somewhere online or in print, but the closest I get is Japanese writers who note the "similarity" but haven't (apparently) yet had the confidence to claim "identicality" and who don't offer proof of any legal connection (like a licensing agreement) between IWC & Orient that would have allowed them to legally use an "identical" system of auto-wind back then.
