Trying to identify a vintage Swiss alarm automatic.
No brand on the face, nor on back (only Swiss made, stainless, incabloc, etc.)
Only a mark on the 17-jewel movement that might be (EB) - Ebauches SA ? under the hairspring.
See photos.

Thanks all.

No - Adolf Schild Cal. AS 5008. The AS 5007 was only experimental and lacked the day-of-the-week feature.

As for the watch, I suspect it was assembled by a private label company for an end user to put his name on the dial and noone ever did (unsold stock?!). I have seen identical watches with identical movements with different names on the dial and the practice of assembling relatively generic watches and selling them to various completely minor end users was not uncommon.
