    Movement ID help please

    I went through two hours search in Felsas, FHF`s, Venus AS and few other manufacturers database. It looked familiar (I think it should be a version of felsa), but couldn`t find a match.

    It is 28mm dia watch so some 22-23 (9.75) movement I gues.

    Two adjust. and 15 jewels, that`s all.

    Watch is not in my hands yet so I can`t provide bettere shots.

    Thanks in advance!

    Maybe you should try with "Langendorf-Lanco" movements.

    I tried, failed to found a match. Any particular movement on your mind?

    Thanks for taking time.

    I'm not certain, but the crescent moon and crown hallmark suggests a German casemaker. And the movement and dial don't say Swiss.

    Very helpfull link Marrick. Thanks for that. I went through the website, and there is no other hallmark simillar to those from a German section. So the case was very likely made by or for German manufacturer.

    I will go through the German movement manufacturers of that time too (if I find a list somewhere).

    Thank you for your trouble!

    It's not one that's familiar to me.

    Might need to post a photo with the dial removed and list the movement diameter to get an ID.

    I think it's a Dreyfus & Cie

    First post here so if the image doesn't show you will find it here:

    10.5 ligne is a bit over 23mm which is close to what you detailed. The movements look very similar.

    Dreyfus & Cie (Pery Watch Co. and Montre Sigma) of Bienne is not to be confused with Moise Dreyfus (Rotary) of La Chaux de Fonds.

    Well it certanly doesn`t get any closer than that. To close to be just "look like".

    Funy, few days ago I bought unknown, at least to me, Pery gents watch (but with FHF movement) from 50-60`s. It was cheap buy and decent looking piece with stell case.
    I read a few lines about Pery Watch Co. and Montre Sigma (Rotary was one of their brands?), but I didn`t noticed the conection with Dreyfus & Cie.
    Will try get some moore info.
    When I get a watch I`ll check dimensions and dial side of the movement in the service process anyway, to be shure.

    Thank you very much, I realy aprechiate that!
