    Well, the movement seems to be related to this one:
    bidfun-db Archive: Watch Movements: Lip 40.2
    The problem is, that the Ranfft archive lists only the open-face LIP movements, and this one is obviously a "hunter" calibre (stem at 3). So, I'm unable to give you the exact calibre number.
    The balance cock should be the same though. If the entire part is missing, then finding a de-cased donor movement might be the only option. Depends on whether a stash of spare parts for LIP PW movements exists or not. Measure the diameter of the movement, and wait for the right donor movement to show up on eBay.
