    Logo on the movement appears to be "Rotary Watch Co."

    Rotary were not the only ones to use the winged wheel though in this case I think it is their symbol. Of course it still leaves open who actually made the movement.

    The only movement maker with that bridge (or should it be: cock) arrangement for the geartrain that springs to mind is Pierce, e.g.:

    bidfun-db Archiv: Uhrwerke: Pierce 12

    Yes, I know, that one is a rather bigger movement but you get the general idea. I would not exclude the possibility of that being a smaller Pierce movement. However, there seems to be some sort of shockproofing on your movement which I can't find on other Pierce movements in Ranfft.....

    Thanks Hartmut,
    When I translated the link it said "shock protection about 1930" which makes sense for the age of the watch as it looks very Art Deco.
