    Help needed.. movement type and what case?

    I was given a bag of movements by local jeweller.. he had 'salvaged' the cases for their gold.. guess he isn't into watches.. anyway, there is this one.. going.. looks like needs key to set and wind.. so what is the movement and what sort of case do you think it would have been in??

    Movement diameter 29mm and 5mm thick..







    Cheers

    I was going to suggest Borgel..

    There's a case on ebay at the moment but its way overpriced and doesn't have the top bezel. If your watchmaker has a whole case.. bargain.. however to fit a Borgel you'd need the threaded ring too.

    Good luck with it mate.. could be a cheap way to have a nice trench Borgel.

    Wish I actually had time to travel the four hours there.. the last time I was there he went out the back and brought out several trays of Roamer parts.. it is a regular Aladdins Cave..

    No case to be found at this point.. so another option has presented itself..

    Found a rimu quartz desk watch.. pretty close fit.. may work out for the time being..
