    I recently picked up an Elgin service manual. It has a section specific to the B.W.Raymond model:





    They were so intent on having them returned to the factory for balance replacement that they didn't even mention the 'balance complete' in the parts interchangeability page:



    Sorry this isn't exactly help, but it may explain the lack of information available.

    My mistake! :oops:

    It says 'Balance complete with hairspring' 729. Looking for other materials for Elgin Durabalance movements I found this:
    Elgin 13/0 wrist watch 23J BWR balance complete 5-729 for 5-730A

    Good Luck!
