    Antique moonphase

    I got this beautiful moon face (sorry for the autocorrect in the subject) as a gift from someone who couldnt explain the origins to me. Quite keen to know where this originates from and who is the manufacturer. Looks like it been refinished and parts been changed. Can you help? TIA

    Re: Antique moonphase

    The movement is a Jules Jurgensen style movement but JJ didn't make their own movements but instead adapted other movements (or had adaptations made for them). The quality of the finissage is rather poor on this one so it's almost certainly not a real JJ movement (others copied that style). One would need to see under the dial to be more certain but I suspect it may turn out to be a Fontainemelon (FHF) base movement.
