Could the horseshoe looking thing possibly be an omega symbol, that would date the movement to 1930.

Have you checked the ads in our database?

1930 would be period Deco, Is the Caseback stamped?

all known and unknown, and every single advertisement 1923 to 1940. i have used every search engine and only seen one similar case but the movement was unique; a paralellogram around the dial. 

the frustrating thing is that when i inherited this in 2003, i found a database right away with the model name and stuff but failed to record it. it was an old name; geraldine comes to mind but i can't be sure.

It's certainly 1929/30 vintage. I've checked through all the ads without luck...

The small picture is not of the subject watch.
owner says this is only one found where case is similar but has unique paralellogram dial.
Different background to top photo too.

I'm not sure the watch owner is saying this pic is of a different watch which looked similar or not?  The lugs do appear different between the two pictures.  So I'm not sure which watch we are ID'ing here.  I guess both pics are very close to a Juno- or the closest match to date.
Unknown or Juno?  That's my question.  I'll PM watch owner.

I agree with Bob. The lugs of the subject watch are different than the pic added in the thread.

Juno would have had wire lugs, the lugs shown would have been added by a watchmaker to accomodate the cord band. I've done this myself a few times.

My vote is for Juno.
