MST 520,  521 
Ligne12''' 12'''

Remarks: This is the hacking manual version of the MST52x series - all (appropriate) parts being interchangeable accross the family. This movement was the final MST designed movement family and was developed in conjunction with Tissot and Certina (although solely a Roamer design). The movement features a large balance, beat correction, hack acting on the 4th (seconds) wheel, solid bankings and an extremely interesting click design on the ratchet wheel.
