    I came across, what looked to be an old Ingraham office regulator…I took the dial of
    it had a un-signed “trapezoid calendar movement in it…no obvious marriage of clock and
    movement was noticed,,,all mounting holes were correct…it had the letters “CD” stamped in the brass
    and the letter “J” also stamped in the brass above it,,,, Any one know who made this movement?? I will try
    and post pictures if I can….any help would be appreciated…..Thanks.

    I might refer you to the December 1999 issue of the NAWCC Bulletin to an article on identifying unmarked movements by the escape wheel bridge. Bases on your photo, I suspect yout movement is a WM. Gilbert (B3.4). Seth Thomas also used this style of bridge on some movements but they used pins or screws to secure the plates where your photo shows the use of nuts. You might check the article to make your final determination. I refer to this article often as it is pretty valuable to have handy.
