    Of course in my tiny auction base, sea Chiefs don't come up daily, but at least you can check in the archive how they should look:

    Mine was a FL 253, yours looks the same. If you right click on the image you can view them in the original dimensions.

    Thanks! Funny, I was actually just looking at your site last night. I searched for FL movements and it popped up. Thanks for the info. It appears from the pics on your site that my movement is the FL253.
