    The dial and movement are marked PW Taylor from Brooklyn, NY. The movement also has Switzerland marked below the bridges. I don't have it yet, so I haven't looked under the dial. I've found some similar layouts, but none with the same details. Does anyone know who may have made the movement?

    Here are a couple more pictures of the dial side and back of the dial. It is a lever set watch.

    That is what I thought when I initially saw it, but I had a hard time finding other Agassiz with the flat mainspring bridge. That does seem like the most likely candidate though. Thanks Dr. Jon!
