Thanks a lot, radger, I appreciate it, I'll have to study the post you linked to in more detail when I'm fully awake.
I had bid on a beautiful Tobias engraved case and jumped the gun a little in bidding on the movement, but now I don't feel so bad about it. Somebody outbid me on the casing but I was the only one that bid on the movement. It was 2 different sales though and I don't think the case would have fit it anyway now that I think about it.
I have a casing size guide but am not sure what a 35mm movement would take. If it's as nice as you say it is though I'll have to invest in one when it gets here, if you could advise me on what you think it would take to fit it:
The seller stated it had been factory ground on the right hand side to fit a case, and you can see in his pix where a little had been taken off the edge of the dial, so I'm guessing a Size 6. I have a picture of it but will post some of my own once it arrives.

I miss the Hamilton pocket watch I used to have and this is a way for me to make it right with myself for selling it so long ago.
