The bridge design looks very generic. 1920's??
"Forever is composed of nows." - Emily Dickinson
"The watch has to be surrounded by a history.
You need more than just a great design. You need to create an atmosphere around the product.
Who is the company behind it? Why are they using this material?
People need to be able to identify the watch with themselves. It's based on emotion." - Ralph Furter
...that's just my opinion and I've been wrong before and will be again and might be now!
I know for sure that case in which this movement is cased,is made in 1907 or 1908.Its one of those Austro-Hungarian commemorative or patriotical pocket watches.Its just serviced,so I'd like to find out something more about this movement.Movement is without any markings, but that bridge scheme is not quiet usual.Tavannes cal. 17'''-8 is pretty close to this one but its not the same.

The click is different but that could just be an adaptation in a later or earlier version.
Here's another "Mobile watch co" watch and discussion: mobile watch co. - National Association of Watch and Clock Collectors Message Board
It's more likley, however, that the basic watch behind both the Mobile's and this one was an ebauche. The design of the keyless works and balance jewels bring me to mind of various early FHF models.

Interesting, I have one similar that I was never able to ID.
Perhaps an older version:
Great,thank you all!
