Additional Information

This appears to be a 1943 Lieutenant.  It is a rose gold case with a copper dial with black printed arabic numbers.  The movement is the rare (1942 only) 10BL 15J movement with a T date code.  The mainspring is broken.  Anyone have any ideas on a mainspring equivalent that I could use.

10BL shares only the 10BZ movement.

Measurements are:

  • 1.40mm - width/height
  • 0.095mm - thickness
  • 10.5 inches - length

Turns out I had a 10ZL parts movement and for some reason thought I would try.   So far it is working great and keeping accurate time.
