    Confused Mystery watch movement

    I have been trying for quite a few months to find what movement this is, will be either Swiss or Japanese, have tried in another section of this forum way back but no response, it is supposed to be a Junkers 3012 but all emails and Google searches reveal nothing, basically it doesn't exist.

    It looks like a Poljot 2614.2H ; a very common movement, which also powered the famous "Jessica".

    Wow I think you're right! could you guess from that the watch size, would have to be fairly small?

    I checked my current Junkers catalogue (from the last Basel fair) and cannot find this model. Nevertheless, Junkers (along with sister brands Zeppelin and Elysse) source 3133 movements from MakTime, but the other Poljot movements would have stopped being made for years. It is interesting to see this particular example being sterile: it could have been built out of unfinished parts, or leftover completed movements, when the Poljot group caved in.

    On second thought:

    Poljot also licensed the production of this movement to Chaika, who also built sterile ones. If you have this watch, take a look at the plate under the balance: it might just be possible that the manufacturer left a discreet mark there. If you find the Poljot crown logo, or the Chaika shield logo, then its origin would be confirmed.

    Slightly OT but thank you for making me aware of that wonderful article. Famous it may be but I hadn't seen it before.
