    Zimmerman Watch movement I.D. needed

    Hi All,
    Bought a 1950's/60's watch that needs a stem and setting parts and can find no makers mark. There is a BS 57 and DT stamped on the dial side. Imported by Allerton with a AYE import code. Any help narrowing the manufacturer would be greatly appreciated.

    How about an AS 1187.

    Regards.

    Or a 1194, if it's 11.5'''

    Regards.

    Definitely an AS 1194 - the stem release screw on the AS 1187 is sitting practically on the edge of the movement.

    Which enables me to raise a point: you frequently (as in this case) see two different but closely related movements under different calibre numbers that only differ in size. One might think that they upscale everything (larger movements are more accurate and you might as well use the space available) - but no, the buggers use all the same parts but simply make the main plate and bridges a little larger! Which is a bit of a cheat, really, since there is absolutely no difference between a small movement with a large movement spacer ring and a large movement with a small movement spacer ring in the same sized case. They're even at it these days (ETA 7750 and ETA Valgranges A07.211). Who do they think they're kidding.....?!
