    Help identifying Cyma movement

    Hi all. I am enclosing a picture of a Cyma movement that I can't seem to find listed anywhere. I admit that I have gone through Dr Ranfft's superb database, but didn't find it there. Perhaps it's hiding under another guise? There are no markings evident anywhere (aside from Cyma on the winding gear..)
    Anyway: it measures 28.7 mm with my calipers, so I take that to be 12 3/4'''. It's manual wind, sub second.
    Does anyone out there know the calibre number (or other info)?

    Many thanks.

    Sounds like it is not far off in size from a Cyma 13'''B:

    Thanks, Hartmut. I'd had a look at that one, but discounted it. I will reinvestigate. Time to take the dial off, I guess, have a good luck around.

    Looks the same to me - and the same as Marcs one - I'd dig up the Borgel thread but David shows it

    Yes, it is looking a lot like the 370, isn't it? The movement is much older than I'd thought. Thanks for your (& Harmut) help, once again.

    How old did you think it? Dial to me would place it late Thirties, early Forties. I would have said the same for the hands but I'm not sure they weren't used a bit earlier.

    Re: Help identifying Cyma movement

    Yes, I'd say 30s, too. But I bought it from someone who thought it was 50s, and I really never thought about it too much. Funny how you can automatically accept these things without question at times. Anyway, I love the dial! Runs sweet, too.
