    Looks an early circa 1900s fixed lugs low cost Swiss "dollar" movement watch. Do some searches under Ingersoll dollar watches for lots of details
    Probably using a pin pallet escapement.

    Probably nearly impossible to name the maker.

    Looks a lot like this EB 698, but yours has an extra gear in the winding wheels. Probably just means it's a different EB model: bidfun-db Archive: Watch Movements: EB 698 (AS 698)
