Today it’ll be this sorely abused 1940s Mentor made by Bader & Hafner of Holderbank, Switzerland.

It runs on the workhorse Baumgartner 800 which came with various jewel counts, this one claiming 15 and with some token blue-ing to the click spring and screw heads. Fancy biscuits, indeed.

Incidentally, the Mentor brand was the subject of an “Honour’s Topics” in 2017, as seen here:
