    Anyone shine light on this Bure Movement?

    Hello all,

    Not sure why it is so difficult to find good reference material on Bure, but it has dodged me for far too long.
    Movement measures 44mm
    Case measures 57mm - seems to be steel as no base metal is showing through anywhere. Cuvette shows Cyrillic name, but not as 'Official Supplier...'
    Can you give some insight into what caliber movement this is? Approximate date?
    Thanks in advance,

    Hello, David!

    Here you can find case serial numbers for Buhre:

    Famous "Supplier" signature disappeared in the beginning of 1918.

    Photo below shows rare double factory signature: old stamp was grinded and simple signature stamped over the old one.
    That one has serial number 493XXX, it points to beginning of 1918.
