    I just picked up a few chrono cases, one with a flat bezel, 38mm across, dial about 34mm, movement 31mm across. movement height seems to e about 3mm, with an additional 1mm to accommodate the dial

    the other one has a normal bezel, the case is 35mm , movement is 33mm across movement possibly 4.25mm high.

    Neither are marked with anything other than a serial number.

    Is there any way of identifying what movement was supposed to go in either of these please? 20160427_182054_1-1_resized.jpg 20160427_182206-1_resized.jpg 20160427_182522(0)-1_resized.jpg 20160427_182705_1-1_resized.jpg

    Hi, are you sure your movement height measures are correct? There's no way a chrono movement would have just 3mm of height. Revise your height measures.

    The flat bezel case ( 34mm x 31mm x 3mm) number 709 is a Breitling case and the correct movement for it is a Venus 175 like this one:

    As to the regular bezel case I can't tell you for sure until you tell me the correct height dimensions.
