This movement is full of rust, but is still working and is still pretty reliable.
The Bifora 91⁄1 is available in two versions, one with fully integrated, indirectly driven center second and the other with a decentral small subsecond. Both versions use the same plates.
Like many Bifora movements, this one uses a Bishock shock protection system. It can only be found in Bifora movements.
