    The book I have shows illustrations of different movements. The illustration that most closely matched your movement was labeled "Grade 151". However, if the serial number records show a different grade, then the record is what I would go with. Hope this helps you find what you need!

    It is a grade 220 from 1903. Total production 36000 between 1899 and 1903.
    Both grades 220 and 151 are of model 6.
