It is the nr. 554 which was the subject of a previous thread in the forum. The movement is absolutely identical to that now posted.Ps. I think that the number of movement also exists in your watch. It should be placed under the dial and is almost certainly higher than 1xx which is the number of the watch case. The number of movement 554 which is a Pallweber I has a case nr. 3xx.

costi92 Wrote:It is different from your because it's open face. However, the dial should be identical with the inscription hour in blue (even your watch should have it in blue, French, Dutch or German). The case has Swiss hallmarks with the inscription 800 silver warranted in a shield (this is typical of the early Palwebers) and the case number is 3xx. I know another movement with the same characteristics and the number 5xx.It would need to have a photograph of the hallmarks of your case and another one of the movement under the dial (I think here there is the movement number which should be between 330 and 399). All first Pallwebers known to me have numbers of movement from 300 to 400 or from 500 to 600.
Archy Wrote:Thanks,have you taken a look at the dial and back lid?You were right regarding the blue writing on the dial but I have a same identiacal early movement with pruple writing on the dial. Was the blue color common (and other is rare) or it was just a guess from you?
