    Pocket watch calibre

    Greatings to all!
    I am having trouble identifiing the calibre of this single pusher pocket chronograph watch. It seems very similar with an old Valjoux calibre. It is 50mm in diameter. No markings are present on the dial. Serial number of the watch is 25167 and 10490 is stamped under the balance wheel.
    Any help will be highly appreciated.
    Thanks!

    The movement is 50mm? Just double-checking. Can you show the dial?

    Sorry, case diameter is 50.
    Caliber is around 37mm.

    Aha, an up-down chronograph. More useful information.

    The balance cock curving away from the chronograph bridge is characteristic of Landeron but I haven’t found an exact match.

    As stated in the linked thread, it's very likely an Orator Cal. 497.

    My research found Schild cal. 497. But Schild bought Orator in 1944

    1. Hello! What do you think about this movement? It looks to me similar to a Valjoux 60...Thanks!Name:  IMAG4379.jpg
