Arnold & Son – Over complicated movement?

Saw this picture of a watch from Arnold & Son. As far as I can see, it has a sub-second dial and a power reserve indicator. What I don’t understand is the purpose of the two huge gears at the 10 & 2 o’clock position of the watch. Anyone knows anything more about this piece?
