Hello all ....Having read John Mathews recent post on his spectacular cased Hoddell. I thought I might be able to add something of this maker. The movement is in an American case with a maker stamp of G. D. & CO. and the serial number on the case and movement is 9605 I have no idea of the merits of this movement other than than It appears to be a side lever with the banking pins located at the very last portion of the lever (opposite end from the fork ) as well as having a hack feature ..I’m mostly blind when attempting to view the inner depths of a English full plate fusee, not to mention my lack of knowledge is a hindrance. However I did view the roller table with a ruby pin inserted into the table ...and could see what I might call a wide gaped/jawed fork being impulsed by the ruby pin and jewels on the pallets. The steel of the lever appeared to be stainless or chromed ...very high polish I was hoping that I might garner some insight as to the US case maker and also the movement features . A comparable serial number in a proper English case would be a dream So I might be able to date the movement Thanks in advance for any assistance ....John .
