Good point - I hadn't noticed the missing dust cover. If the springs are weighted then all bets are off ... but it would be easy to tell from the total weight of the watch.

My friend the appraiser is waiting for a confirmation on the diameter of the case.

I related to her that we are a having a BIG discussion as to whether the watch is a lady's or gents watch.

Hopefully we can get a clarification shortly - I am a little surprised by the interest, but I did not think they made these movements for lady's watches.

compare side by side the movement up to an American 6s

it is the movement that reads the size; cases vary

On the lady's/gent's question, here are some example watches.

First a James McCabe with diamond endstone, surely a gent's dress watch, diameter 40mm :-

These watches are pretty old, Marty. They were made for those evening vests that you mention? Those vests were Gent's fashion in the 1840's?

Tiffany didn't weight their cases, they didn't need to!
