FORTUNE 18s CASE AND MOVEMENT SERIAL NUMBERS

Introduced in 1890 as a 10K GF 15 Yr. case and  about 1899/1900 marketed as a 20 Yr. case.

This  project was a lot more work and a lot more satisfying than I had anticipated.

Other than the assertion that cases bearing 07/08 were made in those years I draw no conclusions here, that is for you to do. This is just a list of numbers compiled over the years while trying to remain objective and being aware of avoiding confirmation bias. 

Case & Movement numbers were collected from anywhere I could find them and I would like to thank the many who responded to my requests for clarification. Examples are subject to errors of reporting and recording.

You will see many “empty” or “re-case” or  “just the case back” notes  that were collected  because at the time they were a high or low number for the category or bore a dated dedication  and were kept as they gave context to the rest of the numbers. Cases showing evidence of a prior movement were mostly not in included and if they were I left a notation XMKS.

No “X” or exchange  cases are included because I never saw a one and they would provide no useful information. I do have a theory why there are none but will have to leave that for later.

There are instances where the case and movement numbers seem inconsistent. This may be because a movement was put in a new case when the old one was worn out (2nd. Gen.? or NXMKS) or a collector upgraded to a better case having the same screw marks (Diligent re-case?).

Correct sizing of non American movements was a challenge unless a lever set was visible or an accurate comparison could be made. Dating them was more difficult so you will see a few of these  (????).

Anomaly – FITS 2 CATEGORIES – 18s

Serial numbers (shown above in RED as well as below the photo) and 08 fit previous category but does not carry warranty – GOLD FILLED and small o fit the following category. I can’t explain this, there are other instances where markings cross categories, usually near the end.
