    Gubelin movement?

    Hi,

    I am trying to find out if this movement was made by Gubelin, or another company.





    Thanks
    Justin

    Looks like it should be a smaller movement (ca. 20mm). It looks like one of the smaller Felsa Bidynators, e.g. Cal. 700 series:

    The bigger ones have the winding wheel under the balance cock, the smaller ones above. I am not aware of Gübelin making their own movements.

    Thanks guys. I was under the impression that Gubelin had created movements and some for other companies. Hmmm.

    Actually, it was the other way around. They were/are a retailer, and used a wide array of base movements from many different manufactures over the years. What makes Gubelin particularly interesting, though, is that they both finished the movements in-house, and occasionally used top-class movements such as Patek Philippe and Audemars Piguet.
