Animations of Self-Winding Watch Stop-Work

42 animations of stop-work used in self-winding watches have been created to be used in conjunction with the second edition of my book "The Origins of Self-Winding Watches" and an article on Breguet (not yet available).

These animations repeat indefinitely, but they cannot be reset. I suggest you use Firefox and install the following extension (or similar if others exist):
