    ID a movement

    Picked up a Rotary Maximus off of Fleabay.

    Only Swiss Made 15 Jewels on the movement. Any ideas as to age and original maker? I don't know if any marks are under the dial. I'll have my watchmaker look.

    Click on the picture for bigger ones.







    Oh, Case is Sliver and British proofed with an "F" date code.

    Thanks.

    The anchor means it was hallmarked in Birmingham, the lion that it was sterling silver, and the F that it was assayed in 1930. Nice clear hallmarks!

    Yes it looks as if it's from the 1930s and the case verifies that. Typical nice Swiss movement of that era.

    If I didn't know any better, I'd have sworn that it was an old Zenith movement..... Can't figure out any connection with "Rotary Maximus", though.

    I've heard that Rotary watch co. cased movements for import into Great Britain. I would assume Zenith would be a possibility.

    Thanks for the info, y'all.
