    Help to identify old pocket watch movement

    Hi all,

    I saw this on eBay, which I thought looked pretty interesting.

    Gold Pocket Watch.18ct. Repetition heures et quarts . Chronographe . 32 Rubis. | eBay

    Would the experts here be able to identify the movement used? It is not very often that I get to see a repeater pocket watch with a chronograph function and 32-jewel movement (as claimed by the seller).

    Thanks!

    Looks like something by Le Phare. Looks like there's a Swiss cross symbol on the movement, so if there is any patent number close to it, this should help in identifying it. However, no number can be seen in the photo, so it's a dead end.

    Le Phare was known for making generic movements with complications like a calendar, moonphase, chronograph, quarter or minute repeater... In a watch not signed by any manufacturer, it is likely to be one of their movements. Looking up other Le Phare chronograph/repeater movements, I did see a few very similar in design to this one, so...
