Hi, I would like any information about this movement. It has Gold screw in Ruby Jewels and a "Snap-on double sunk dial"; I am informed by the seller that it has an 18k setting lever and he thinks that the train maybe gold. It was sold by "Cowell & Hubbard of Cleveland", who where a high end Jewelers who in later years were taken over by "Baily Banks and Biddle". It will take some work to get it running but that is part of the enjoyment of collecting Pocket Watches. The case has gone to the scrappers. rpaige@bigpond.net.au

Hi
The balance weights are usually gold but I doubt
much else is.
What happened to it? It looks like it was stored
in muddy water.

Looks like the regulator arm is missing as well. Looks to be in really rough shape from the pictures. Unless it cleans up nice, it will cost a pretty penny to get it running correctly. Hopefully the cost was really low.

The movement looks similar to Systeme Glashutte watches I have seen in 14K which would make it a swiss movement if I am right. JFL

Hi, the movement came from down South in the USA and has probably been in a flood. It will not cost a cent to repair; I do my own repairs and I have a nice Lathe.
