Hi,

You will likely have better luck posting this on the WRISTWATCH message board I would think.

Regards,

Hi Dave, Ron Gabriel,I have a Gruen watch with a Font 1144 8 3/4 Ligne movt.,the only movts. that will interchange are[Gruen 620, 626, 627, 100, 101, FF Robert 160,or Bulova 8A,8AA,8AA1,8AB or 8AN]it is a cushion style from the 1920's,with a beautiful dial and 14K white gold case,really a nice looking watch,I think they did not make to many with this Movt.,the other problem is I have tried other 8 3/4 lignes but the dial feet are wrong,have been to W.T Hoyt here in Seattle as well as all the others I know,and nothing for that Movt.,but I am determined to find one to work,I hate giving up once I get started,that could be my other problem!!!!!!!
