So the data says that it is adjusted to 2 positions and is not a Railroad grade, and when I look up the S/N it says it is a Grade 555. The movement is actually a 573 and adjusted to 5 positions. Any help here??

Freemasonry dial. Very collectable and a nice movement.  
Don’t forget the funny hand shake.

So do you think it is RR grade? Has the inside setting leaver.

If you mean railroad, my answer would be no. I think the movement and its condition is too good. It could be for someone who has something to do with the R R and also a freemason. Someone who does not get his hands dirty.

5 adjustments is not the same as adjusted to five positions it is thought to mean that the watch is adjusted to heat, cold and three positions on these Elgin grade 573. A watch stating 8 adjustments would be a watch that is adjusted to 5 postions, heat, cold, and isochronism.

Thanks for the insight, appreciated.

    • It has 'Vaillant a Paria' on the chapter ring I did a search in Goggle and he made high end clocks, one sold for 600,000 at auction and a few others 20,000+ he is also listed in Loomes book. That is why I do not understand the error in the movement. I looked at some of his movements on other clocks and they look the same, however most key holes are in the right place. I think I will contact a high end seller that has one of his clocks for sale to ask if this was one of his, hope I get a reply.
    • Cousinsuk have there own size chart. Which i think is the best. Esslinger have the right one that most other use. U should need a tap 8 crown. As for the crown. older Tissot used a domed crown without logo.    Watch Stem Tap Chart _ mm Size Reference Chart _ Esslinger.com _ Esslinger Watchmaker Supplies Blog.html
    • I get it....and I honestly dont blame them. However theres much more to the story primaruly shitty customer service. The bottom line the price between a tag aquaracer and the Oris TT1 is $0. The reason why I went with the TT1 was its smaller size. With that said this saga has taught me a couple things.......Oris uses a cheaper grade movement and their quality is much less than the TAG do youre better iff with the TAG in the end. For me back then I had no concept of movements etc etc and though each watch manf made everything in house. Had I known then what I know now I wouldnt have purchased the TT1. Hopefully anybody in that same situation may stumble upon this thread and be warned as I was not. Sent from my SM-G950U using Tapatalk
    • Not surprisingly, an ETA 2824-2. https://www.atlantic-watches.ch/en/shop/retro-vintage/worldmaster-original/2355/worldmaster-original?c=80 But a price of RON 125,  or €26 seems too good to be true.
    • What is an "adjustable escapement"? Even the cheapest mov.t can be rate regulated, while adjustment is a sort of obscure art which if you ask about,  you will be told that "starts at the mainspring". Whatever that means
