Not me. Had "Guildite" been in the description, I probably would have spotted it and taken a shot.

Incidentally, if anybody's wondering what that movement is, it's either a 690 or 691. The ebauche for both is the FEF 130. It's the same movement that's in both my Import 220 and 221. The 220 is standard sub-seconds at 6:00 and the 221 is a duo-dial. I presume that's why there's both a 690 and 691 with the same ebauche - one's the standard and the other's the duo-dial. I just have no idea which is which, since the only mention I can find of them is in one of the 1940s parts catalogs, and it just shows the setting parts, which are the same for both.
