I picked this up about a year and a half ago, I believe, and I still haven't found much information about it. I'm hoping someone here knows a bit more. When was this made and what was it for specifically? Maybe an old ad is out there with more details? Also, what movement(s) should I be looking for that would work in this? I'd really like to get a movement in it once again since its such a nice case. If there are any further pictures or information I need to provide please let me know. Thank you all for the help, as always, it's deeply appreciated.

We would need the inside measurement & any stem hole and where is it located. Any screw marks from old movement?
Maybe a car clock case or chronometer case?
