    Assistance please to identify a movement - watch is a Limit No.2

    I have a pocket watch that I would like to put back in use. The case and movement are intact but the glass, hour hand and second hand are missing or damaged. The dial is marked 'Limit No.2' - the firm apparently were assemblers with a base in Northen England (Oldham?) - the movement offers few clues ....

    .... If I can identify the movement it should help me locate a hand set.

    TIA

    Rowley.

    I can't help with the movement ID, but you don't need to know the movement to find the right hands. These were always pretty much generic, and looking at your minute hand, this is the most common style. You need to have the hole measurements and length and you should be able to find a good match - of course replacing the minute and hour hands together makes the most sense. Holes can also be resized.

    Limit is still going - only now importing from the Far East:

    Limit Watches - Our history

    For members outside the UK, Limit has been a mass market brand for nearly a hundred years and a lot of their watches were of decent quality always using Swiss movements.

    I believe, from googling, that the pocket watch movements were made by G Thommen (Revue-Thommen). I can't find an exact match though. Others may know more.
