    The crown and moon are German import marks;
    the [ 0.800 ] is a Swiss silver purity mark.

    Your movement is probably Swiss;
    unless it was manufactured by one
    of the larger, better-known makers,
    the movement serial number won't
    be of use.

    Can you post a movement image?
    Someone here might recognize it,
    or give you more information
    based on the mechanical details.
