I'm afraid that I can't find a match. All I can state is the obvious: with a repeater (or sonnerie) mechanism and a cylindre escapement, it must be old - probably pre-1850. The maker is french: Monteil in Toulouse so the movement may well be french too.

Thank you.
"Monteit a Toulouse". I do not believe that this is a producer name. I shall try on France forum and shall inform if any answer.

"Monteil" (not Monteit) was probably the maker/assembler of the watch and need not have been the maker of the movement if he used an ebauche made by another company. If you google "Monteil" and "Toulouse", you get a few hits, maybe that will help you further.
