Not sure if I Should post it here or in the European watches forum section. I bought this parts movement with dust cover attached really cheap for $12 and I thought it was a pretty good steal. Now I'm trying to figure out if these parts are correct for the Dust cover. The dust cover appears to say Union Village Geo. Russel Esq Chrometer As we can see in the pictures it also appears to be a crudely done inscription in the dust cover but I feel pretty confident that it is authentic. In the Complete Price Guide to Watches, they got this maker listed as Phila. PA 1840. BUT when I bought it, I was not able to inspect the movement to see under the dust cover. I don't think the person knew how to take it off. I was lucky that the balance cock and wheel where still on the parts movement. Just the guts missing. That person only had this 1 watch for sale everything else was just old stuff non watch related. So, As we can see in the picture it appears that the Movement is made by someone else completely. Wm Hollison London No 12599 All the holes on the dust cover appear to line up correctly. I'm guessing that the style is correct for the time period. Its a Huge movement. Approximately 43mm wide and 18mm thick with the dial. I cannot find any other information on George Russel so I don't know anything else about him. Is it possible he just made cases and dust covers for these imported movements or is this a Franken Fusee someone just threw the dust cover onto? The dust cover is a really nice fit to the movement. What do the experts think? I understand that most of these colonial watchmakers just finished off the watches and cased them. And im pretty sure that's what is going on here with this dust cover on this movement. Not sure though. Any input appreciated. Thanks!
