    Default Interesting Heinrich

    Here is a nice H. H. Heinrich of NYC #503. What is interesting is the size movement. The top plate is 58mm, dial is 95mm and the bezel is 107mm. Also interesting are the pillar screws. The movement size and balance suggest something much earlier than the approximate 1880's which I presume Heinrich's to be. Everything appears to be made together. Was Heinrich known to use available movements? The box is 6.250" square. Does anyone have a similar Heinrich? It is easy on the eyes! Comments?

    Paul, very pretty movement, really nice shape, love the box too. Hopefully, someone knows the maker and time period.

    Thank you Richiec.
    I thought there might have been more comments, especially with the movement having tall brass pillar screws and the interesting mortised dust band on the box. I assume that an earlier chronometer must have been redialed by Heinrich due to its availability or whatever.
    Thanks, Paul

    Paul,

    I'm sure I've those pillar screws in the past. I looked through a lot of my stuff and could not find anything. It may have been one in a catalog or I saw real time.?? It's unique enough, it would probably identify the maker, or at least the locale it came from.

    Paul,

    Do you have the von Bertolle book? It might have a similar movement pictured.

    No Ralph, I do not have that reference.
