The semicircular aperture in the dial reveals part of a revolving disk with images of the sun and moon that point to the hours (VI–XII–VI). The minutes are shown on the ring at the outer edge of the dial and the seconds at the bottom (the hand is missing). The dial has been partly stoned down and engraved with the present signature, which replaced that of the Dutch watchmaker.
