Finding the Lift Angle for a Garrard automatic watch

Question

Hi all

I have an old Garrard Automatic watch from the late 60's 

I have been trying to find its lift angle but none of the lists I have found online show any Garrard watches, I assume they just put their name on another makers watch.

Anyone got any idea as to how I find the correct angle or do I just assume its the usual 52deg.

This is so I can set my Timegrapher correctly.

Thanks for any help with this

Hi 

The movement is an ETA 2472, mid to late 60’s is my best guess?

The case was made by gold workers/jewellers David Shackman & Sons (Rubin & Albert), 19/22 Regency House, Warwick St, & Chiltern Works, Waterside, Chesham, Buckinghamshire.

The hallmarks are for London 1969.

Garrard used bought in Swiss movements quite often eta   You should see the logo and callibre under the balance
