I just purchased this South Bend 0 size in a wrist watch case on ebay for less than fifty dollars. The auction ended in the middle of the night, and I did not wait up to place my bid. As you can see the photos were not of good quality, but I decided to take a chance on it since I have a fifteen jewel South Bend movement that needs a case, and I've been looking for a wrist case for a little while now. Hopefully it's not too beat up to make a neat project (I also realize it's missing the stem/crown).
It isn't due to arrive until Monday, so I thought it would be fun to see if anyone wants to speculate (or guess) what movement might be inside? I will be happy even if its a broken seven jewel movement as long as the case is functional, but since it could be anything, I am imagining a grade 150.
I will take better pictures and announce the results after it arrives. Anyone?

so, that was you overbidding me? I have a few wrist cases usually filled with 0s grade 110 or unmarked 15 to 17 jewels. If this would be grade 150 I will be jealous and you very lucky.
Problem here will be crown and stem as it was installed with special sleeve which I never seen on the market. At least socket for crown seems intact. I will wait for better pictures as auction description was slightly enigmatic....
