    Benrus movement help

    Recently took a chance on a modestly priced Benrus day date pointer for parts/repair. Unusual movement model for this watch. Normally CE 3 or 13. This one is CE 1. Can't find info on it. Needs work but time/date/day does set easily.
    Can anyone shed light on this movement and/or source for parts?

    Thanks.

    As you probably know, it looks to be (or based on) an ETA 930: bidfun-db Archive: Watch Movements: ETA 930

    Thanks. I did know based on that same site that the CE 3,4,13,14 are all ETA 930 based movements. CE 1 isn't listed as a benrus movement, so that, and the new anchor screws lead me to suspect it isn't native to this watch. Any opinions? Has anyone seen CE 1 marked movements native to a Benrus?

    No movement image, unfortunately: https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/MENS-VINT...H/262888226010, but seemingly signed as a CE 1. Mind you, no guarantees that it's native to the watch (!)

    Regards.

    Thanks!
    I did search ebay but missed that listing. Looking up that perhaps this nomenclature was actually used by the company.
