An A. Shild 341 15 jewel movement

As with this Avalon it seems every time I pick up a 1920’s watch that’s still beating I’m going to find the A.S. makers mark somewhere on the movement. Un-casing the watch and seeing the decades of dirt and crud inside only strengthens that suspicion. They seem to run forever with just their basic needs being met. Maybe it’s the fact that they weren’t the thinnest movements as that wasn’t really a high priority for watches yet. Maybe it’s just good old fashioned quality craftsmanship, I’m inclined to believe the latter.?
