    Moved to vintage. Case is obviously gold plated. Watch looks like it might be a 15 jewel movement.

    The case was made by Th. (Thomas?) Baeder of Switzerland - but I don't know anything about them.

    I don't recognise the movement - but someone else might. Pretty watch.

    Please don't PM me to ask for a valuation - I won't attempt one.

    The movement is obviously a lower to mid grade cylindre escapement movement from the twenties. Adolf Schild and ETA both had movements in that style with the balance cock on the left (AS Cal. 52 and ETA Cal. 355) but the exact bridge styles don't match. Ultimately, you will need a watchmaker to take the hands and dial off to see whether there is a maker's mark under the dial - or at least to see what the keyless works (winding and setting mechanism) looks like.
