    Help needed with movement ID.

    Hi guys, anyone got a clue what this movement is?
    I can't seem to find a match using "advanced" on Roland Ranfft's site.

    Cheers,
    Bob.

    Not very good at PW movement identifications, but at first sight it looks like the Omega PW movements.

    Resembles some Junghans movements as well as Unitas. In this case I think you should post pictures of the dial side of the movement. Identification will be possible by looking at the keyless works. In particular the setting lever spring.

    Not my watch. It is an old post on mybulova, where we are trying to compile a list of early ebauches used by Bulova.
    The watch is thought to be around 1920, as per the movement markings. The dial is unmarked (not unusual for early Bulova) and no other photos or info is available.

    Some printed info from '47 and '66 Marshall's may help?

    Re: Help needed with movement ID.

    Thanks Emre, this is a 19''' movement, and a Bulova trained jeweler over on mybulova thinks it is one of Bulova's own. The 19AT is too late, they were first made in 1926.

    This is one on Watchophilia, and will date to some time around 1916-1920. The Rubaiyat was known to be made during that time, although only one advert for a man's p/w by that name has ever been found (by me, of course! ), and this is for an octagonal case from 1919, but mentions they made round too.

    I am seeing resemblances to the Unitas movements as well.
