    Can anyone identify the manufacturer of this movement?

    Hello. The pictures below are from a 30s or 40s Westend watch with a Taubert Decagonal case. I know that Longines, FHF, and some other movement houses supplied Westend with movements, but beside the stamped "W" on the bridge I can't find any other markings. Nothing under the balance as far as I can see. Does anyone recognize this movement? Thank you in advance.

    I think it's probably an FHF, but I'm not sure which one.

    I don’t think West End had their movements stamped until at least the late Forties. That it has Incabloc confirms this. Don’t be fooled by West End in terms of dating as they specialised in retro styling.

    This is not "retro" and has the logo W on the movement

    Anyway WEW Co was probably the first company to make watches with the Incabloc system since the early 40s.
