      Urgos is a well known German Manufacturer of Mechanical Clock Movements. Most seen today seem to be for Grandfather Clocks. Yours is definitely post WWII so I think your Wedding Gift dating makes sense. Regarding the key size, if you value this heirloom, you should have the movement properly serviced before putting it back into use. The clock shop or repair person can give you an appropriately sized winding key. It's not clear from the photo but it looks like one of the hands is missing. Possibly the minute hand. If so, of course that would be something that needs to be addressed as well. Good luck and thanks for sharing.
