I have one silver pocket watch, massive, but need service.
To buy parts for this watch, I should know witch movement is inside.
Dial is damaged, but it maybe worth to be repaired.

Dial and case is signed as LA VILLA

And movement too, near to balance with same logo

But can anyone identify movement?

Thanks in advance

"La Villa" with that logo was registered in 1903 and was a brand of the company Montre La Villa / Léon Reuche, founded in 1880 in La Chaux de Fonds.

I'm sorry but I can't (or won't) vote until I have more information. Are you going to use it? If not, then it's definitely not worth spending the cash on. Is it broken or does it just need a service? Servicing is usually worth it but repair may well not be. Etc. etc.

Need service.
Watchmaker did not recognized movement, so I need to find info about movement to find out caliber and find parts for it.
Maybe it need balance replacement.
But, before to make decision about repair (service) I need to see is this worth or not?
It's depend (on my opinion) from movement. If is will be something like Johann Jorgo (zenith movement) it will be worth service, but if is this some usual movement, nothing special,
I will not repair this. Plus it have damaged dial. Glass is not problem, but dial and parts...

Anyone recognize movement? Any idea?
