    New Silvana watch purchase

    Just received a Silvana watch I purchased. Any help on the movement and possible date would be appreciated. As always, comments welcome.

    The movement is an Adolf Schild Cal. AS 1194 (there is also the smaller version AS 1158 and derivatives, but in yours, the edge of the mainspring gear isn't so close to the edge of the movement, so I think it's the bigger version):

    bidfun-db Archiv: Uhrwerke: AS 1194

    The watch looks a little as if it's from the 1940s but with 17 jewels instead of 15 and Incabloc shock proofing, it is more likely to be from the 1950s.

    Wow, it's in a beautiful condition. One of the case screws is missing though. Could cause the movement to slightly rattle. It could be the picture or my interpretation but it looks like the endstone of the escape wheel is missing.

    Thank you Hartmut. I'm having the watch serviced, so I'll find out soon if there are any problems.
