Maker's name on movement appears to say H. Eule. I haven't been able to find information on this unusual movement. Would appreciate any help.

Welcome to the forum.

The maker of your movement used some sort of technology that was patented to Helmut Eule (whose name is also on the movement) in 1952. (Patent number 865129). (Courtesy JTD). So your movement was made later than 1951.

This does not mean that Eule made your movement.

There appears to be additional writing on the bottom of your movement that I can not decipher. Please provide a better picture of that area of the backplate or let us know what is written there.

Regards.

Thank you. I have attached another photo of remaining writing but I don't think it provides any more maker info.

It says no jewels adjusted. Made in Germany.
Regarding the movement, the time is working properly however the strike side will only strike when operating manually through side door. It does strike the appropriate timing when done manually. Any help with fixing the strike is appreciated. Also if anyone can provide a diagram of this movement would greatly help.
