Does anyone recognise this old lock or know anything about it? Probably from 40s, 65 mm dial ring, 49 mm dial, 35 mm handle. Numbers go to 120, no gaps in numbers.

Nope, never seen. Do you know what key lock it is? Could help.

Probably a Kromer Novum, judging from the size of the hole. Hard to say more before I open the combination lock, as it blocks the keyway with a small metal plate.

A friend of mine suggested that it might be made by Kaipio here in Finland (nowadays Kaso), it looks eerily familiar to their keyway cover locks. I'm now suspecting the same, as it has no ID, the door looks like it is made by Kaipio and the combination lock is "reprogrammed" by switching the position of the dial. Solid pins or something as flys, HUGE 35 number rotational difference when switching directions and apparently a spring pushing the fence down on the wheel pack as it clicks/snaps on some numbers.

Only had enough time to visit the client briefly and notice these, will be going back there on weekend to open it. Expect more photos :)
