    Identity of Pocket Watch Movement?

    I posted this movement the other day in Trim's thread about Borgel pocket watches, but it got lost in the general discussion about Phenix and Porrentruy. It's a nice clean 18 jewel Swiss lever movement. I have no idea who made it, and if anyone can enlighten me I would be most grateful. It appears to be a high quality movement because the jewels are held in screwed chatons rather than being pressed into the plates. But I don't know much about movements, so I would be happy if someone with more knowledge would comment.

    Regards - David

    Something about it says "Longines" to me. The design looks early 20th century (maybe 20s?), but I'm guessing a bit there. I'd have expected better finishing from Longines though. Anything under the dial?

    Sorry, forgot to mention that the watch case is hallmarked dated 1910.

    I will have to take a look under the dial.
