    The style of the bridges and the generaly layout of the movement looks more like a Jaeger LeCoultre to me.

    I am not a pocket watch guy but did Tiffany actually build any movements or just brand them? I know i have seen many different movements from different manufacturers in Tiffany pocket watches but they were all signed Tiffany.

    A sad end for what would have been a very nice (and probably expensive) watch. I doubt the case is original; it doesn't seem to fit quite right. The movement is missing its maltese cross. It has the look of an Audemar or Lecoutre, but this pattern of watch was very widely used in the early 20th century by nearly every high-grade watchmaker in existence. It's based on an ebauche that was produced en masse and then finished (to varying degrees of quality) by different people. Tiffany tended to use larger companies in order to ensure quality and consistency, but at this point in the watch's life, that isn't adding much value. So no, the movement itself isn't particularly valuable at this point, except maybe as parts to help restore a better preserved specimen.

    As said, case looks wrong, it is missing the stop work geneva stop work and the hour wheel.
    The was a scrapped pocket watch and the dial was probably ripped off when they cut through the case to get the gold on the scales.

    Oh yes its a part of a old treasure. Very nice movement and I guess to substitude the malteser cross is easy if you want to keep it as a demonstration object for a very very good movement or as AbslombRob said need to rescue another watch.

    Thank you for showing the movement and the rare to view dial side
