    What movement is this?

    I am terrible at identifying watch movements. Won this Olma yesterday.



    I did notice the adjustment was all the way to one side but it had a ton of things I loved so I had to get it.

    It looks very like bidfun-db Archive: Watch Movements: ETA 1090 - but without shock protection and the fancy hairspring gizmo - so perhaps an earlier version.

    Looks close. Website says the Incastar Regulator is optional so that would explain the lack of that.

    But the Olma says 15 jewels and the ETA is a 17 jewel. Maybe a version of that?

    Probably. It was made at a time when options for jewel counts were quite normal. Your movement also lacks another optional extra: the Incastar regulation (the only serially produced generic free swinging regulation system).
