    Trench watch movement identification Baume Co

    I have a trench watch which I cannot establish the movement. Any help welcome.

    The movement has no markings apart from 15 jewels and Swiss made. It measures 25.1 mm.

    The case inside states: 925 (silver) and s for 1913, as well as London import. In addition in has a AB marker which I believe stands for Arthur Baume for Baume & Company.

    Here some pictures:

    I agree with Luigi. What is the size of the movement?

    The movement measure 25.1 mm.

    I also thought it could be a Longines movement as Baume Co seem to have used them and the winding mechanism looks like other Longines mechanisms.

    Any idea regarding calibre? I looked on Google, but could not find a similar one - especially the bridge is different from most Longines watches I can find.

    Hi,

    Don't know what it is, but definitely not Longines, it does not look like any of their movements. Plus, Baume retailed Longines had a clear "B&Co" engraving on the movement.

    I agree it is not a Longines.
    it could be a previous Liengme to the catalog shown.

    Almost looks like a converted pocket watch movement.

    And here images of the markings inside the case and the dust cover, stating AB which I believe stands for Arthur Baume for Baume & Company.

    Imported Silver (into the UK), sterling .925 in the first image. London Mark (on imported silver) in the second image with 1913 date letter. That's all a bit strange, Victor F... sends his regards.

    It does appear to be the hallmark of Arthur Baume & Co. They've registered with the Assay London office during various periods between 1881 right up to 1925 with the following details: A.B & Co. watch manufacturer & importer, Hatton Garden, London.
