It measures about 42mm. I came across this in my foreign watch pile. I was wondering if anyone has some information on this movement that they can share. Thank you in advance.

As enrico says, Charles Morlet. If you look at Swiss patent No. 8430 of 1894 you will see the patent inscribed on this movement.

it is not a matter of low grade or high grade movement , but an incomplete movement (perhaps other pieces are missing) and it is difficult to find spare parts or a suitable case. Charles Morlet worked with H. A.Lugrin e Prosper Nordmann
