    Anyone recognize the maker of this movement?
    Eatons used many different manufactures over the years including Longines, Omega, Rolex etc.
    I am trying to work out who made this one. It's not necessarily one of the above 3 mentioned.

    Looks like an old-style Omega to me.

    Thanks for the reply Jess. At first I thought so too, but haven't found a similar Omega.
    I am now leaning towards it having been made by Gallet, though am not 100% positive.
    Still looking in to that.
    I'm hoping to work out for sure who it was made by.
    Also, when it was made and what is the grade & caliber.
    It was left to me as a railroad watch.

    Could be a Gallet. I've seen that movement marked Thomas Russell attributed to gallet on some websites but whether its correct is hard to say.

    Wish the quality of the image was better. The click looks to be rather unique to me.

    I too wish the image quality was better roughbarked.
    Unfortunately I am a lousy photographer...hopefully these will be better?

    Hi RodjB,

    It's a Gallet….. I've got an identical one.
    Yours appears to be missing the micro-regulator assembly though….

    Regards
