    Solar was a store brand for Eatons.

    This looks like a 1950s style watch.

    It would be easier to ID the movement if you rotated the rotor to expose all of the balance wheel and escape wheel. From what I can see, it doesn't look like a movement I'm familiar with but looks like it a has early form of balance saff shock protection (so maybe it's an early 1950s watch). Look under the balance wheel for ID markings but in this era, the marking were often under the dial (or non-existent).

    The rotor is - I think - identical to the one in Bestfit for the "H Savoie 237B" automatic movement - which is the only Savoie they show. The balance cock is different. I can't find any pics of Savoie movements on line.

    I've never heard of Savoie - but it seems to be the same as Lorsa.
