This is an unknown Swiss pocket watch movement with hi-grade wolf teeth winding wheels. It is nicely jeweled. There are no markings to indicate a maker. Enjoy and thanks for looking.

    Here is a H.L. Matile on Worthpoint that is like yours.
    I'm finding information on Matile is pretty sparse.
    I was hoping you were the man with the answers.

    Here is a link to the Swiss report on the Philadelphia Exhibition 1876. I think it is on page 5 where it first mentions H. L. Matile.

    Here is a link to a youtube video on a H. L. Matile key wind.

    Dave, I saw that video of a watchmaker working on a movement. I have a complete Matile somewhere here. If I can find it, I'll let you know. I am surprised that he is not listed in Brian Loomes' or Baillie's books. He did make some of the finest pocket watches.
    Thanks again,
