    Movement ID

    Hey guys,

    I would like to request your assistance in identifying the following movement:



    No markings under the balance except for an 'M' to the left of the wheel.
    It is in a watch that should have a Cortébert movement, but this does not look like a Cort to me.

    Looking forward to your replies.

    Thanks,
    Mark

    The bridge doesn't look like a Cort but the jewel location, screws, and gearing look right. I'll defer to the real experts but there is a strong possibility that it is a Cort. It would help to know the diameter of the movement.

    If you don't get an ID based on your photo, try posting the movement diameter and a photo of the dial side with the dial removed

    Thanks, I can't get the movement diameter just yet, I'm hoping for Dr Ranfft to come along and impart his wisdom

    This is evidently a franken - what you've got there is undoubtedly a liao ning tourbillon

    This is the closest I found in the Cortébert movement catalogue (http://nuke.perseo.cc/English/moveme...2/Default.aspx). I do know for fact that it is an incomplete database, so the fact that there's not an exact match isn't proof that it's not a Cort.

    HazChrono, go back to the Chinese Mechanicals forum where you belong

    Dear,
    I think I have to agree on the Cortebert.
    As given by MACz13.

    RJ van Melle.

    PS: What will a cortebert franken tourbillon would look like? HAHAHA
