What movement will fit this case???

I purchased this case about 2 years ago, and still don't have the right movement. I tried regular old rebberg, I tried Type 59, I tried Unicorn and Marconi, ... nothing seems to fit.

As you can see from the scans the diameter of an old rebberg (unicorn) movement is 23.4 mm, yet the case is designed for a 22.4 mm movement.

Any suggestions???

Thanks,

Vlad

I have a rebberg and a rolex both in pieces.

I'll have to check next week on the Rolex.

You can try the plates to see if they fit your dial.

REbberg measures 21.25 mm It is complete except needs a staff and maybe an hour wheel (probably can find) and a ratchet wheel ( I may have)

Tommy,

Thanks. That just might work. 9 3/4 ligne should be about 22 mm and that's .4 mm smaller then the case - should be a nice fit.

Thanks,

Vlad

Seems a lot of men's watches used the 9 3/4 manual wind...especially early on. It's really way to big for a ladies watch.

Try it.

If you don't have one I'm sure I've got something.
