    Finding a movement in that specific case is going to be difficult. Many varieties of nickel (Silveroid) cases are quite common with and without movments. Why do you need a picture of that case with a movement?

    Oh, I just was hoping that someone here had the watch with this case, then maybe I could have searched for the same movement and put it in the case.

    This case could have been supplied to a large number of manufacturers movement when new, as pocketwatches were bought on movement basis and then the customer decided on which case he wanted the watchmaker/jeweler to house it in. It looks to be from maybe 1910 plus minus and has previously housed a movement with case screws at about 4 and 11 o'clock position.

    Old pocket watch cases are in a sense generic - they will fit a wide range of movements. That's why you see screw head marks at more than two places on older cases.

    Since watch cases were standardized you need to determine the case's size (looks size 18 to me) and get the same sized movement. However it looks like you are missing the crown and stem.
