IDENTIFICATION OF UNSIGNED MOVEMENT

HELLO I AM NEW TO THE FORUM.I WONDER IF ANYONE CAN HELP ME IDENTIFY AN UNSIGNED MOVEMENT?
THE WATCH ITSELF IS A GENTS EARLY 20TH CENTURY (1915) IT IS AN 18 CARAT BORGEL CASED.I SAVED IT FROM THE SCRAP MAN A COUPLE OF WEEKS AGO,ONCE HE KNEW I WANTED IT THE PRICE SHOT UP.THE DIAL HAD ALREADY GONE AND THE SET LEVER HAD BEEN SNAPPED RIPPING OUT THE STEM.ANYWAY TO GET TO THE POINT I HAVE BEEN TOLD TODAY THE MOVEMENT IS ALMOST CERTAINLY VACHERON OR AT LEAST A VACHERON BASED MOVEMENT BUT THERE ARE NO IDENTIFYING MARKS OR SIGNATURE SO IT SEEMS UNLIKELY TO ME.IDENTIFICATION OF UNSIGNED MOVEMENT

Thanks for your response,I really would like to try and attribute this movement to a particular manufacturer or at least a probable manufacturer.Could you give me any advice on how this could be done ? I wondered if the seriel numbers on the movement may help.I have seen a number of this type of movement they are always described as "Vacheron Ebauche"clearly they must be wrong I am sure if it where the case then someone in the forum would have confirmed it.I know it's a bit of a wild goose chase but now I have started I would like to explore all avenues.Hopefully someone will be able to help me with this. Regards to all

Thanks for that. I have taken it to a highly qualified 4th generation repairer it was him who told me it is a Vacheron possibly Patek so I will have to take his word for it.It is now in for full restoration maybe I will post new pictures when it comes back. All the best and regards to everyone
