Finally got around to replacing my older poising tool with an even older poising tool. Made in Glashutte for the German watchmaking industry is this Ernst Kreissig and I’ve never seen one finished quite the same way. It came with a fair amount of rust but after an ultrasonic bath and some turning off the pitted main screw it looks a lot more presentable. It’s a larger model than some of the newer ones I’ve see and the protected jaws are in new condition.

It’s not often you see surface decoration on a poising tool.
