    I need help identifying this movement. It has a broken staff. The watch is marked Nassau, and has this stamp under the dial (Ebauches Trust?) The balance cock is marked "LXA" and the train bridge is marked "17-8." The watch is either 17.5 Lignes or 12 size, and is marked Swiss. Any help appreciated!

    Edit: I searched the Rannft.de site without success....

    LXA is the US Customs import code for:

    "L. Adels Co. New York, Elbon, Lancet, Langendorf, Winton, Marc Nicolet"

    Perhaps there's some clue there.
