Frankenwatch- it has been confirmed to be an Eaton dial, mid 40s movement....Contour only produced 2 years, late 30s so impossible for movement in there to be original

Contour doesn't have a second hand either, probably due to the crown at 12:00 position. It might be tough to find a decent Contour movement and dial unless somebody here has one.

If you can find a dial, the movement shouldn't be a problem. A watchmaker can just clip off the post for the seconds hand.

You don't need to be a watchmaker to do that. :lol: I don't know how many I've broken off accidently not paying attention.

Well, I'm also quite adept at dropping a watch to break the balance staff myself, but I'd rather have a watchmaker do it right. Wait...what?

Hello all. New to the forum. Great website. Does anyone know what this one is? 1950 or 51, maybe a Bailey or a Boulton. Thank you, Eli. Dangit, upside down. Im not good at posting pics, sorry.
