Printed on the back - Cylindre, under that is H hubis (hard to read but I think that's what it says)
Petitpaul Geneve.

It's missing the hands and the winding stem. It has a nice chain and is quite heavy for the size. Any info would be greatly appreciated

    By winding stem, do you mean key?

    BTW, that should be 4 rubis, which would be 4 jewels. Likely a low-quality Swiss-type import from the later 19th century.

    I would think so... looks like a KW/KS to me. (Key wind & key set)
    Only 4 rubies
    I think there is a 4 pic limit so maybe change one of the last 2 pics for one of the movement.

    Thanks, you're right it is a 4. It does look like it uses a key to wind it with. Not sure it helps but the # inside the back cover is 135656

    I'm sure it's fixable, but the rusting pieces tell me it would be quite expensive to fix. The serial number on the case, at this time, isn't helpful as we don't know who made the case itself, and its records were likely lost. Mostly, it's a parts watch now.
