    Question Movement Identification Assistance needed

    Hi Everyone,

    I have acquired a watch which is perplexing. The face and movement are marked Regal, the case is an AWCco Fortune case (with the original paper warranty inside the case) The movement is a 21j 5 position movement. It is an attractive movement but I do not recognize the make or the design to attribute it to a known maker.

    If anyone has some information I would really appreciate it. Thanks.

    Dan

    I'd say Swiss around 1920 or so. I've never heard of Regent. It might be a British company that had their movents made in Switzerland. There were a lot of anonymous Swiss makers so it'll be impossible to identify it exactly.
    Nice quality watch probably cased separately from the movement at a Canadian Jeweler. The case won't tell you anything about the movement, unfortunately.
