11AC 23 Jewel Movement?

1955mercury's picture

This isn't mine, I just got permission to use this photo. Has anyone of you ever seen a 23 jewel 11AC movement? Although it doesn't show in the photo, the owner says it has an "N1" date code stamped on it.

Alan - if you can get a photo showing the date code to verify the age, you can add it (the photo) to the movement dB for the 11AC record. Right now we show the 11AC starting in 1955 at 17 jewel only.

Thanks Geoff but I would like to confirm this isn't an abnormality or something first by at least finding another one.  I've never seen a 11AC in 23 jewel and the 1971 ABC catalog of parts only list a 17 jewel in the 11AC.
