I just acquired a ST 44AE movement. Anyone know what case this movement belongs in? I tried to use the pend drop calculator to find the pend length, but the train is not laid out like the calculator examples.

They were used in several models. It’s an old movement. I think that one was in a Tudor around 1860-70. Others should be able to help with other models.

Maybe a short drop Schoolhouse?

It looks like the movement has been bushed recently, and congratulations on finding an old movement that still has the stop works intact!

They also went into black mantels. Those had a 3 5/8" stamp for pendulum length. This is actually the approximate length for the pendulum rod/spring assembly. IMO, you're looking at one of the best production clock movements ever made, often refered to as the 'big wheel" movement. Willie X

I have a Tudor. This movement is not like the one in my Tudor.
Here's my Tudor, with the same movement as in your photo. Mine is likely somewhat older, however, as mine has a Plymouth stamp on the movement and a Thomaston, Conn. label on the case.

Pendulum length is about 9 inches from top center to bottom of pendulum.
...and the stop works are still on this movement as well!

Here is the movement in the Tudor I have. The label is Plymouth Hollow.
