    Unknown Movement

    I have a movement with no markings apart from a "G.V." on the barrel ratchet wheel. Its a 6.75 x 11 Ligne movement. Bestfit page 130 bottom left. The A.Schild 723 is pretty close but not the same. Its pre inca block. I am after parts but first need to identify movement.
    Thanks
    Can attach an image if needed

    I'm confused; if you've matched the setting mechanism to one of the ones in Bestfit, then that should tell you the movement. If it doesn't match, then you're being very optimistic to assume we can ID the movement based solely on the limited information you've provided. Yes, an image is likely needed.

    I have had one person say it could be a Kurth 73. I am after a balance complete.

    Kurth / Certina 73 would be my guess as well based on the keyless works. Good luck finding that though. Bestfit doesn't even list a balance, which doesn't bode well for being able to "swap" in a wheel from another watch that isn't from the exact same movement.
