    A nice watch, even though it needs some care. It looks like it was made by Phenix Watch Co. of Porrentruy, Switzerland, and branded for some jeweller or watch seller named E. Barnard, located in Swan River, Manitoba, Canada. The movement is probably related to this but with a bridge modification (and a different balance cock - hence only "related to" rather than "this one with bridge modification"):

    Thanks for the info. I actually found an advertisement from the jeweler from 1926. He was a Swiss Canadian.
