    Question 1930s Monopusher movement ID

    Evening All! I recently picked this one up and I would like to find the correct second hand (and possibly new balance). By any chance can someone identify the movement? I've trawled Dr. Ranfft's website to no avail:

    MST 236. You are also missing the centre seconds parts.

    Thank you very much for that - greatly appreciated :) So that's what the three holes are for - I suspect that it may take me some time to track down the missing parts.

    Haha! I really should try searching a bit more:

    I can't tell you but probable makers include Adolf Schild, Langendorf and Meyer & Stüdeli (MST). It looks like an ordinary cylindre escapement mocement to which someone has added a hacking feature by button to the blance wheel in order to make something like a "chronostop". For there to be much point in that, you would need a seconds hand, though. Should the movement have one and it's dropped off?

    Yes, I wondered at first if it was the same watch. You are going to find it very difficult to find the missing parts. The basic watch is relatively common but few watchmakers will work on these.

    Well, I've bunged the movement type into a saved search on fleabay - I'll let it sit and wait :)
