Research Note: Some movements in this run are marked "Culver" instead of "H.Z. Culver." The "Culver" movements were originally intended to be sold as a distinctive grade featuring a solid steel balance wheel and were only produced for a short period of time before discontinuation. Some movements during a transitional period are marked "Culver" with the upgraded expansion balance. Later, the "H.Z. Culver" and "Culver" movements were consolidated in material catalogs.

#1100: Verified as Marked "Culver" with solid balance wheel.
#1154: Verified as Marked "H.Z. Culver" with an expansion balance.
#1155: Verified as Marked "Culver" with solid balance wheel.
#1184: Verified as Marked "H.Z. Culver" with an expansion balance.
#1237: Verified as Marked "Culver" with expansion balance (balance serial numbers match).
