No idea about the make of the watch, but the movement is reminiscent of a Blum & Grosjean 12.5''' like this one.

Regards.

Hi there , thank you that is more or less identical to the movement I have. Do you have any more information even where you got this image. After a google search only came up with race drivers.

Found this but again no make and model but found by putting in Blum. Any more help appreciated I need a balance wheel complete or hairspring if available.

I regret being unable to suggest offhand where you may find what you're looking for. The "make and model" of the movement is a Blum and Grosjean 12.5''', and the only other info I can contribute is the following spec:

Dimensions: 12 1/2 ''', Functions: manual wind, without second, Escapement: cylinder escapement, Stones: 10, Shock protection: None: A / h: 18,000, Power Reserve: Unknown, Balance: brass, Production period: unknown, possibly around 1890

Identification: Hallmarked with FABRIQUE D ARTS on the dial, a Blum & Grosjean registered trademark in 1883. According to Pritchard, the company has produced its own works of 10 to 14 '''diameter, Remarks: Clutch lift with lever.

It may be a question of using a complete donor movement, along the lines of that which you have found.  I've experienced difficulties in sourcing "parts only" for one of my own watches, and am resigned to finding a complete donor movement which also isn't easy. 

Regards.

That might have helped me also, Blum & Grosjean is not a name I have heard before when trying to get to the bottom of this movement...
