Hi, a while ago I purchased a movement by Arnold & Lewis, St Anne's Square, Manchester; I was impressed by the quality, so Today I purchased a Freesprung Key Wind movement. Regards Ray

A little bit of rust around the attaching screw for the Hairspring. The movement runs.

Hi, I just got this from my Friend who is a skilled English Watchmaker:
Hi Ray,

Arnold & Lewis were a high quality retailer in St. Ann's Square, Manchester, where the wealthy citizens of the city shopped. They sold some very good watches, some by Kullberg. I don't think they were connected with the chronometer Arnolds though.

You certainly haven't lost your eye for a bargain!

Regards,

Graham
