I have a 28.9mm (12.75''') 7J movement that I'm trying to ID despite it missing numerous parts (including the balance cock and one of the three train bridges).

The movement is marked "Kleiner" and has "SFG" in an oval on the plate under the dial (the "SFG" is not a clear indentation so it might be something slightly different).

Does anyone know of a movement maker that is "SFG" or something similar that might have made a 12.75''' movement?

I'm sorry, I can't find that mark in an oval. The less commonly known SFG is Scheller Freres, Geneva (logo is "SFG" on a grandfather clock) and the more commonly known one is Schild Freres, Grenchen (=Eterna) but their SFG is in a coat of arms.

Is this one the same? Marked SFG in an oval.

Just bought it due to the interesting variation on a semi-hermetic case (and nice dial).

Of course now I am interested in finding out too.

WRT to Eterna SA / Schild Freres & Co. (mikrolisk), it does bare a passing resemblance to this one on the dial side.

Mine's missing enough pieces that ID is likely to be impossible

Did anyone get anywhere with this?

Mine looks like Bjohnson's.... all parts present.... just rusty!!

Typically, wanted this to be a font.... movement looked like the Font 26, dial looked in good shape... so this and another watch for a fiver, thought it could be usefull for parts!

Nope.... SFG under the dial! Interesting square bezel!

(it is quite rusty, balance is shot.... other than that, its a beauty!)

EDIT: Oh and Eterna never replied.
Why do you think its Eterna..... or even swiss? No Dial or movement seems to be marked 'swiss' anywhere (cant see yours or BH's dial)? As Hartmut says, the logo is different to this one....

Is 'Kleiner' as stated to be on the first one German?
