    Pocket watch movement help

    Happy New Year to everyone.

    Does anybody recognize the below PW movement maker & caliber?
    Unfortunately, I don't have the exact movement measurement but the outside case diameter is about 40mm.

    Can't identify it exactly but the basic structure (shape of geartrain bridge, shape of balance cock, split crown gear and mainspring barrel bridge, mainspring barrel bridge with gap at edge) reminds me of Parennin. E.g. the Parennin Z towards the bottom of this page:

    ...with a separate fourth gear cock (i.e. another bridge adaption). But then, someone may disprove me entirely with another, exact match for a different calibre.

    Thanks Hartmut, the layout does look similar to Parrenin. If it is Parrenin cal that would be my second one though this one (with case diam 40mm) would have to be smaller than 18.5'''?

    With a case diameter of only 40mm, I would expect at most a 15''' movement. Even a 16''' would be pushing it rather (only 2mm either side of the movement) - unless you are rounding down.
