Help Identifying Cortebert movement

Post by bmsm » November 23rd, 2019, 7:48 am

Hi all,


I remember that someone asked for help identifying a similar movement. But I wasn’t able to find it. If the admins could help it would be cool.

I found this movement for sale:

I thought that it was the Cort 514 but looking into a little bit better the bridges screw are at different position so I got confused.

Thanks

Looks like a 516 or a 518.

I believe those are too large to fit into our universe of cases?

bmsm,

Are you looking for a 514? I've got a nice example of one.

I need to double check , but I believe it is 36 mm size 16"

I was considering buying the one I mentioned due to the price 5euros and if it was 16’’.

But thanks for the offer @binbin.

Just for the record incase someone stumbles on this. I have two of these movements. One has one screw on the crown wheel, the other has three screws.

I took the three screw movement out tonight to measure it and it measures
Dm= 39.25mm, Do= 39.8mm
H= 3.8mm
as shown on http://www.ranfft.de/cgi-bin/bidfun-db. ... tebert_516
This may not be a 514, but a 516 movement.

I can physically see on the other movement (the one with one screw on the crown wheel and the one in the photo below) that the plates are much thicker. I guess I will need to remove it and measure it also.

I hope this might be useful to anyone in the future.
