A nice ETA 2391 (or derivative) inside.....

at least I know now who inspired Universal for their Polerouters.
Regads, Roland Ranfft
Out the back. In your movement photo the screws at 2 & 8 position at the outer edge appear to hold it in place with the little plates that slot under the edge of the movement spacer.
As a starting point before pulling apart, I soaked whole movement in some lighter fluid to get rid of the excessive oil.. next checked hairspring and found it was tangled... now ticking away nicely..
Preparing mentally to do a full strip down of the movement which will be my first..
So if you could all cross your collective fingers it would be appreciated..
Good luck Tony, that's a nice movement so hope it goes well.
Really - they called it "Jarproof". I thought that name was registered for Gothic, but maybe not. Nice one, and the resemblance of the chapter ring to those fouond in Polerouters is striking, indeed.
Good luck with your repair job!
After all's been said and done, there's a lot more said than done...
Patina: little pieces of history put on old watches and forgotten there by the maker of time

"Luxury watches - you acquire the right to take care of them, but they remain the property of their manufacturers."

Was making progress then 'ping' off went a tiny spring for the date change..
So before I lose any more pieces, I think I will call it a day and get the local watchmaker to finish.. hopefully, he will have a replacement part..
Hints on how to avoid losing parts like this in the future will be greatly received..
