Well, I couldn't get it until I took the dial off. So I'll give you guys a chance:

Watch Watch accessory Analog watch Gear Fashion accessory


The dial:
Brass Metal Measuring instrument


And the case back.

I've not gotten any closer than it is probably German based on the shock protection...

German I guessed too based on the dial and also the caseback which seems a strange mix of languages. Beyond that I'd guess pin lever based mostly on the style of movement plates and click spring but it moves me no nearer having any clue as to what this might be.

OK - good guess - but wrong.

Dial side:

Disc brake Auto part Vehicle brake Flange Rotor


And reminder - the dial is branded Median.

Alright, thanks to those who had a look. It is marked an Enz 152 movement. Mikrolisk gives Median as a brand of Franz Schnurr of Pforzheim, and his brands include Enz-Median.

Mikrolisk - was Feines für die Tasche... - Das Informationsportal rund um die Taschenuhr!

Apparently, Enz is a place just outside Pforzheim, so it is Enz not E-N-Z.

Whilst the symbol is listed in quite a few places https://www.watchuseek.com/f295/swiss-makers-marks-221601.html I can find nothing about the movements.

Bestfit lists only one calibre - the 153:

The mainspring and hairspring are both kaput on this one, although the balance swings OK.

So if anybody knows anything, and wants to tie up a few loose......Enz.:roll:

...and for those who don't know, "Enz" is the name of the river through Pforzheim. It flows into the Neckar, the river that goes through Stuttgart - and (for the tourists) later also through Heidelberg. So, a natural choice of name for a Pforzheim watch movement maker.

I knew this: I spent three years stationed at Ludendorff Kaserne Kornwestheim, I actually crossed the Neckar when commuting from the little town of Affalterbach. It's near were the Celtic tomb of a Prince was unearthed in Hochdorf. I passed the excavation every day, to and from work, not knowing why a big tent was pitched in the middle of a farm field, on the flight back to the US I read a National Geographic article on the find.
