    Tiffany & Co. movement right?

    I’m curious if this movement I’ve seen is right. The case seems ok to me, but this is beyond me!

    Hi,

    This is a Longines movement, maybe a calibre 18.49. Tiffany was mainly a retailer, at most a case maker, but not a movement maker.

    My bad, maybe more like a calibre 18.50, it seems like a savonette layout movement. Or a 20 lignes maybe, how large is the movement ?

    Well, Tiffany was known to have their markings instead of those of the movement manufacturer's put on movements supplied to them. At least that was the case with the movements they bought from Patek and VC. Can't see why would it be any different with a movement by Longines. However, it wouldn't hurt to check if these markings are in line with other Longines movements in Tiffany PWs. Still, the only way to know for sure is to find a serial on the movement, and contact Longines's Heritage Department, and see if they confirm that the movement was invoiced at Tiffany.
