    I posted some months back about a C.W. Co. movement I was trying to identify the manufacturer of, with no luck. Google search seems to indicate there was a C.W. jewelry company located in the US midwest back in the day, which might be the retailer- the logo WAS only on the dial, with nothing but a nearly-polished-off serial number on the movement itself. There is an escutcheon for a company or personal name on the movement also, but that seems to have been polished off as well. What I want to ask is about the proper sized case I would need to house this movement (which has been running well and accurately since I bought it). With a ruler (I REALLY need to buy a micrometer) the diameter is 1 1/4 inches- one chart I found online indicates this as corresponding to a case between 2s and 3s, while on ebay 32mm movements are listed as size 00 in some instances. Help please- thanks!

    Crescent Watch Case Co (CWCC) is/was a well-known maker of watch cases in America. If you search that forum you'll find hundreds of posts about them.

    If the watch you are trying to size is American, I suggest that you post your request there. And by the way, I certainly wouldn't depend on Ebay to help you size a movement! ;)

    Thanks- though I don't believe C.W.Co is related to CWCC. In any case (groan...) the movement is very much Swiss- with a regulator arm that looks a lot like an 1890's Gallet design, just as the escutcheon does. I haven't seen another one like it in a decade of following Swiss pocketwatch auctions on Ebay. It is a stem-wind movement.
