Challenge "Wheatstone Cryptograph — Part 1"

The Wheatstone Cryptograph is a simple device that resembles a clock with two hands. For each hand there is a ring of symbols.

Are you able to decrypt the given ciphertext?

Is there a set way to start analysing an encrypted text? For instance, first: frequency analysis, second: 'the next thing', etc.?

For this exercise we were given part of original plaintext but how would I go about solving this using CypTool2 if we only had the encrypted text?

Regards, Phloryn.

Edit: Also, how could I recreate this encryption in CrypTool2 starting from the orginal plaintext?
