Serial Number 4454844 was reported as inaccurate.

Note: Non-hunter. Is open face
Also 17 jewels marked on mvmt
Also seconds dial indicator located at 3:00
position
Instead of 6:00.
Curator Response: Thanks for the report and images. Your particular movement is fitted with a "conversion dial" that allows a hunting movement to be fitted in an openface case while maintaining the stem at the 12:00 position. These dials can cause confusion related to the original factory configuration, but the Grade 27 Raymond is a hunting movement. The "17 Jewels" is not a factory marking. In addition to the rough engraving that is inconsistent with the factory markings, the center wheel is not jeweled as would be expected with a 17-Jewel B.W. Raymond movement.
