    pocket watch movement identification

    Guys, can someone identify this mechanism, what brand is it?
    Why some brand not write the name on the dial, or movement?
    Thank you.

    I search in the dark. I've seen this mikroregulation until now at movements of Longines and G.Thommen (Revue) but both doesn't match. Nice quality movement in all points. You've removed the case. May be a view on the dialside is possible and helps.

    I must say that I doubt that it is a common version of the movement. Rather, it is probably a "Jules Jurgensen style" adaptation of a common but different looking ebauche. As such, I think that a look at the keyless works will be necessary to get a clue as to the original movement maker.

    You go to a watchmaker to see the back of the dial.Then I take pictures and I will return.
    Thank you.

    I was a the watchmaker.On the back of the dial does not write anything and has no stamp.Under the dial, the movement has two series.The first number is 33 and the second series has 6 digits.
    Can anyone had this movement.It is a movement of quality and are surprised that the manufacturer did not write the name or company stamp.
    However, maybe someone knows who made this movement.
    Thank you.

    In that case, I suspect it's an Unitas Cal. 33 in the savonette ("hunter") version with a bridge modification. Here is the lepine (open face PW) version without any modifications:

    As you can see, the exact position of the gears in relation to the rest of the movement, the exact shape of the lever cock under the balance plus some other features (position of some of the screws, especially the two that hold the dial feet) match. For absolute confirmation, compare the keyless works under the dial.

    Hello. Doesn't this seem too early for the Unitas 33? The regulator and hairspring stud style also 'seems' (!) to speak of another Maker...of course, once we can see under the dial...!!
