    LEVER - faux chrono lever pin watch - can you tell me more?

    Hi,
    this just came in mail. I've bought it (cheap) for its nice looking dial, but I cannot find any information on this brand - LEVER .
    The movement is 30mm in diameter and looks almost like the Baumgartner 670.
    I don't have the hands remove tool, so I cannot look at the other side of the movement.
    Does anyone know anything?
    Thanks,
    Michal

    Mikrolisk only has one reference for the Lever brand- see below.


    Lever Gebr. Thiel GmbH Ruhla, Deutschland; registriert am 3.10.1929

    It doesn't look like a Thiel Brothers movement. It looks Swiss. (D'oh! it literally has 'Swiss Made' all over it)

    'Lever' seems like a non-brand like 'Anker', doesn't it? I can recall a 'Birmingham Patent Lever' and a 'York Lever' (that one really is Thiel Bros) but not 'Lever'. Not really a Google-friendly name either...

    I wrote to the Ruhla watch museum and asked them. I hope to get my hand puller in the mail today so I can look at the other side of the movement.

    I suspect this piece may be part of the of R.Lapanouse family of timer watches.

    James A, that's what I think now as well. After finding a photo of 6 very alike but different in detail movements, I think my can be number 7.
    The other side of the movement gave no other answers.
