    Here you go, movement out of the case and showing the split stem end. It might be a while before the restoration pictures. As you can see from the scuff marks on the movement plate, the rotor has a bearing problem so the next challenge will be assessing if it need replacement parts or "adjustment".

    Congratulations! Looks like the famous Adolf Schild Cal. AS 1673. This has an offset rotor so that the rotor doesn't compete with the gears in the centre for space, permitting the movement to reduce its height (to 4.5mm):

    Thanks for the information. I am just learning that the Swiss calibres were used in a variety of brands just as today. Without identifying numbers on the movement it is difficult for newcomers to recognise which calibre it is but that is part of the learning process. Do you know if the rotor bearing is replaceable or serviceable if it is worn? Thanks. Rob

    It likely won't be repairable but it will be replaceable providing you get a replacement. Unfortunately, it is not one of the more common generic calibres but fortunately, it is still generic. Try Ofrei or some other watch parts dealer.
