Movement ID help please.

Recommended Posts

Can anyone help me with identifying this please, I just got the pic sent from a friend, apparently it came out of a F.B. trench watch. Thanks.

The calibre number used to be on the front of a lot of movements, under the dial.

Thanks Scott, it's a top loader, and I don't think the owner would want to try and remove the dial. It apparently came out of a F.B. Silver trench watch type case. Most of the era seemed to have either IWC movements or Longines, but none that match this. The dial is sterile.

Hi WRENCH,

I decided to take a quick search.  I am not a watchmaker but I believe it is a General Watch Co. movement.

They later became Helvetia.

Hope this helps,

Thank you. Much appreciated, I spent hours online and going through reference books and came up with nothing. :thumbsup:
