    The AS caliber 137 (which is what this looks like); assuming it is 15 jewels. This caliber is a great movement in my opinion. Practically ubiquitous in the wristwatches of the late 19-teens and 1920s and parts are easy to find to this day. Case style is nice but a shame about the plating loss.

    Hi HOROLOGIST007
    I think that minute hand is an replacement and both hands are relumed additionally the seconds hand is a little bit deviated
