    Hello. Because I’m a pocket watch guy I’m not usually over here-hope you won’t hold that against me. The attached photos are of an early self winding watch I came across recently and I’m hoping someone can identify it for me. Unfortunately someone scratched the name off of the dial. Thanks in advance for any help you can give me.

    Good ID, Cort. And interesting design. I can't figure out how it auto-winds. :?|

    Interesting movement, I cannot for the life of me make heads or tails of how it operates from this photo.

    For some reason my photos seem fuzzy. Sorry. This is a closeup of the self winding mechanism. The two little “hooks” catch the teeth on those two wheels depending on which direction the weight swings.
