    The pictured movement is out of a wristwatch that I'd date to the 1950s or 60s,

    The movement is approx. 11 ligne with 17 jewels & its escapement is the usual pallet lever type. It is marked "Swiss" & has an MYU stamp which I take to be an American import code (the watch was purchased from a Michigan seller). That code was assigned to Rego Watch. Perhaps Rego contracted with another Swiss manufacturer for this movement, in that so far as I can tell Rego was only known for producing 1 jewel pin lever types of movements.

    The movement also bears the sig of Mohertus Trading Co. however it would not appear that Mohertus was a movement manufacturer, noting that the interior back cover was also signed by them & further indicating that they were from France. Mohertus likely orchestrated having the watch slapped together for distribution by them.

    Thanks in advance for any assistance ...
