    I can't find any others like this and there is no maker information that I can find on the watch. It has some classic Glashutte features, but a lot of different features too. I'm just interested in finding out more about it.

    Won’t be easy, but the dial side and escapement are totally Swiss :)

    I agree, it seems like an awkward mix of swiss and german.

    yet made for the American market? (fast slow)? Cool watch either way. Looks like iwc-ish influence.

    It may be by Nomos. Glasshutte watche except for Nomos and Alpina (another possibility) all used the standard Glashutte ebauche. Nomos, not the company with the same naem today set yu shop in Glashutte but used Swiss oarts adn it got nasty. (The current Nomos company is makes very fine products and are delightful people but the company was named by their founder whio lived in Berlin and did not know that the name was widely despised in Glashutte.

    I have not seen enough Nomos I watches to be able to tell for certain..
