    Randy, if your movement is the one I think it is, the wind arbors line up straight across the front of the dial. If so, I have a dial that will fit it. The replacement movements have the center arbor lower, so the new dials fit this arrangement. Weights should be the same as new movement weights, as should hands. Butterworth lists the weights as 7.7 pounds for time and strike, and 9.9 for the chime.

    Randy, are the winding arbors in a straight line across the front of the movement? Or is the center arbor lower than the other two?
    Is there a year stamped on the back of the movement?

    I think if the arbors were straight, it meant it was built by Urgos. Helpful, maybe?
