    I saw this Suveran 2400-3 on sale in Sweden.

    The dial looks in good condition as well as the case but I fear that there is something wrong with the movement.

    suveran 2.jpg

    It is a cal. 266 datable around 1953 which ill-accords with the reference 2400-3 which probably dates back some years before

    This is my 2400-2.

    Are my considerations correct?

    That movement is wrong... Completely wrong.

    Funny - I saw the advert too and didn't notice the glaring fault. Completely blinded by the dial ::facepalm2::

    This references should use the famous 30T2 movement not a 266 caliber. It was probably switched or replaced at one point. This is a pretty rare dial though so one could find a proper 30T2 movement for this watch and have a killer suveran

    Does it has SUVERAN on caseback?

    The reference 2400 should say suveran on the caseback although the reference 2400 had 3 different casebacks to my knowledge and 1 of them does not say suveran on it. This watch is correct only the movement does not belong in it.
