How to recognize a movement?

Question

Hello guys,

 

Maybe a stupid question, still have to start my 3 year corse in September, but a question that is in my mind for a long time... How do you recognize a movement brand.

Automatic or Quartz, Watch brands call it a like RR257-7 but it's for example a ETA... How can you tell what's inside so you can start finding parts?

 

Thanks for not laughing with me, and answer my question that is playing in my head. ;-)

As Tmuir says look for the logos usually under the balance along with the calibre number for example:-

as 1712-2  as being the brand 1712-2 the calibre, You will require both numbers to be able to order parts, I have enclosed two PDFs of the bestfit books, Have a browse through them the information will be useful when you start your course. In one of them there is a couple of pages of makers logos.

Takes some years to recognize and learn movements . I use rannft a lot. http://www.ranfft.de/cgi-bin/bidfun-db.cgi?10&ranfft&2&2uswk

There is usually a number or something on the movement so you can  identify it. Google the number . Even Ebay could help sometimes. 

There is other pages that have a lot of movements. Like https://17jewels.info/
