    Please help to identify this watch

    Dear friends,


    I would kinldy like to ask you for your help. This obviously rare watch has been sitting in my friends drawer for decades. I say obviously rare, because I was not able to find anything about it on the web. My friend is a fine watchsmiths and has had this watch completely dissasembled, but there is absolutely no marking on the movement at all. He needs to find some spare parts for it and therefore needs to know what to look for:
    1. what is the exact type of the watch?
    2. what caliber is in it? (there is no marking, not even on the mainplate)
    3. do you know some spare parts source? (ebay is your friend, I know, but anything else?... )
    4. Do you know a history of this watch?
    I will be very grateful for any info. Thank you very much!
