The only thing so far is this.

Lengnau is a municipality in the district of Zurzach in the canton of Aargau in Switzerland

Is that punch hollow? I think it is a balance staff remover or roller remover tool. I have no idea what those two knobs are for on the side. If it removes what I’ve said. There’s nothing to stop the parts just dropping through.

How did you get it?

I've seen one before, but have always thought they have something to do with what oldhippy said, balance staff remover. I believe the bottom lever on the left is to pull towards the other part sticking out, which is just to have something to hold onto to make it easier for the lever to move, if that makes sense.

Does the lever on the left pull the vice grip closer to the V cutout, once it is roughly set with the main setting knob at the front?

The thumb knob opens the mouth in the center and the side knob is just used to brace the other finger as leverage. The knob on the end is an unknown feature.dc1df7d40c8a1fe7c3930a9a704569fb.jpg
No hole in the stake at all. I thought it would somehow be for studding a Hairspring ??

Oberli and Loeb is still in existence the company changed name to Oberli CNC in 1998 they are a small engineering company that amongst other things manufacture tools for the watch industry, the tools they produce are specialist tools manufactured to the clients manufacturing needs.

The tool you have will have been made to do one job over and over again in a manufacturing environment.

You could try contacting them and see if they remember who they produced it for and what its use is

Personally I think this tool is for pinning a hairspring to a collet

    • Dear all, I recently had the pleasure of finding a damaged hairspring needing care. My first! It’s an inexpensive orient watch, gaining 20 minutes a day. I am taking Mark’s fault finding course, and have other inexpensive hairsprings to practise with. I also got some vintage tools I’d love to use. Until now for me levellers were only the Oliver Cromwell people, but ebay never ceases to surprise... I could pass the first stages of correcting the coil, with two tweezers. But could not find a use for the vintage tools. Could you help me to figure it out?  Picture 1 is the bent hairspring  picture 2 and 3 the box of tas levellers picture 4 is the hairspring suffering under my tweezers now picture 5 shows the tip of the tools picture 6: from De Carle. Would this be the purpose of the levellers? The overcoil? 
    • my first running watch was an Wyler squire.  i wore the case out,  the mvt. would fall out at work.  i still have it and another with a similar case.   vin
    • First watch was a Kered    from Shepherds of the shambles in York, alas no longer in business. The plus side is I still have the watch it was a 21st birthday pressie, and even better it still ticks  54 years later although the dial has a water mark ,    I even wore it playing cricket for 12 years. 
    • Hi  Whats the possibility of building a frame fitted to the desk  with an overhead flourescent tube or double tube assembly over the work area, Inconjunction with the desk lamp it should minimise the shadows.  If the height is made adjustable up/down it would be even better. 
    • My first watch was a Adram divers watch with a EB 8012 movement. This was a birthday present and was subsequently the first way I attempted to repair (age 11). Ironically a few years ago my brother found it and I re-furbished it as it runs great.
