Yesterday, I picked up what I believe is a Cal. 450 movement that came from a Weems watch. I would love to know what you think about this, and if it dates to around 1940, as I expect. Here are a couple of photos:
As you can see, the movement is missing a few bits, such as the cannon pinion, hour wheel and sweep seconds pinion. It also needs a new centre wheel. I've located all these parts, with the exception of the hour wheel. Would the hour wheel from a Cal. 449 work?
On the plus side, the movement appears to have a correct, original winding crown for the Weems watch. Would you agree?
Now, I just need a case, dial and hands. At least this is a start!
