Without taking the dial off and finger printing the set bridge. I would say either A Schild 500, Aurore 8, or Felsa 66.

Common Swiss movement from the early 1930's.

Does that help?

Thanks Neil-the time era is something but in all honesty the rest is greek to me. A pal is getting into Ladies wristies,and it can be tough to get data/ID these things.

Not really Marty -

For most of the lady's movements from the late 20's on there are books called fingerprint books that watchmakers use to ID who made the movement because most of the time these were contract watches. That is the brand is not who made the movement.

The most common one (book) is made by BestFit. There is also Paulson, Marshall, and a few others.
