    Recognize this pocket watch movement?

    Does anybody recognize this pocket watch movement?
    Also what is the stamp in the case cuvette?
    The watch has quite an attractive case and the watch works but needs a service.
    Any help is appreciated.

    The markings give reference to Huguenin Freres. Here is one example Quality Silver Hunter Pocket Watch with Hunting Scene. c.1910 The movement is not distinctive we need a picture of the face to have a base to start from.

    It has no center wheel, maybe a roskoff style movement?
    I'm a watchbreaker not a watchmaker.

    Thank you all for your replies.
    I knew I have seen the case makers mark somewhere. Thank you for pointing this out to me watch origins.
    Itri I have noticed this also. Shanton has a similar movement in her book ”Pocket Watches 19th – 20th Century” on page 155. It is a Anon 13 jewels Swiss club tooth lever movement with straight line lever and two arm balance. The difference is that the movement is reversed to mine i/e winding gears on the left and balance on the right.
    Somebody might still come up with the maker. It is quite unusual to have no centre wheel except in Rosskopf watches and mine isn’t one.
    Thank you
    Kurt

    Reconvilier

    It looks like it fits somewhere between the two Societe Horlogere Reconvilier lever movements shown below:

    Thank you cellar.
