    Pocket Watch Movement ID Help

    Any idea who the maker of this pocket watch movement is? it is in a 56mm case marked with a crown and below that DKB with an arrow through it. No markings on the movement and it looks to be of good quality but is it a private label movement that is impossible to ID? I think the engraving on the dust cover is in German or Swiss? It does appear to have some characteristics of some high quality makers but can't find a match. Longines is the closest match I have found but still has quite a few differences. I will keep looking but any ID help is appreciated.

    It’s a typically French style bridge layout so given the Swiss hallmarked case I’d be looking at Swiss makers based around Geneva (which you can see from any map is more in France than in Switzerland).

    That helps narrow the search, thanks Mirius.
