    I have alot of movements that originally came from England
    I kept overlooking this one, but for some reason it caught my eye today, it just seemed different. Any idea? It's a 10s. 7 jewel.
    Thanks
    Dan

    Yes. Triangle stud is a dead giveaway. Grade 28, 10s. Elgin exported a lot of movements to England in the 1870s.
