Jabs, I have parts for many of the ladies watches including a very large selection of glass crystals. I don't work on the ladies, too small for me.

JP Thanks for the offer, this watch I bought at auction a lot of cheap. Also, I am not youngest and therefore I have no eyesight very best. If I can get a functional movement that would be better. If it does not to get back to you and I'll try to fix it for practice. Most 5AD movements that I found were exactly the same defect - broken balance.

It does have characteristics of "La Petite family" :)    I'll hunt for an ad.  One 1955 ad from this thread  .   Do all "La Petite family" have diamonds?  Does subject watch have a couple diamonds on lugs?

I've looked a couple times for this one, I just don't find any match at all.

Unknown, for now.

"4 diamonds cureve into lovers knots..."  Looks like enough to change my vote from unknown to generic La Petite.
