    Hi Marrick,

    Thanks for trying!

    Not finding any matches myself... I think I could with some movement reference books.....

    Cheers,

    Marc

    Just came across this thread by Kurtnz:

    https://forums.watchuseek.com/f11/nee...ch-382000.html

    I had seen the watch in Trims recent font thread:

    https://forums.watchuseek.com/f11/yet...ch-670853.html

    But, its in the first thread that shows the dial side of the movement.... which has very similar setting gear!







    Now, I have only been able to ID my many FHF watches, as they have the patent number CH51482 which relates the setting gear.... these borgel movements have different setting gear, as they are pin set.....

    So... could this be another Font.......

    As previously discussed... there are many variations!!

    It could be. It is somewhat like your 1916 one with a modified setting works cover. But, then - many things look similar.

    You can overlay scaled transparent photos to check how things line up to one of your font calibres. You can measure your staff and mainspring, and you can dismantle to see if there is a mark under the barrel bridge.

    But in that configuration, it isn't in any of my books.
