The A. Schild caliber AS 1220 was introduced in the 1940s. You will often see this movement rebranded under other names, or simply as AS 1220. The AS stands for A. Schild. The movement pictured was found in a vintage Regalis dress watch. It is unsigned.

You will notice the triangle cut-out in the main bridge. The anti-shock system has not been clearly identified, but may be Monorex or Simrex.

There were other variations of this movement including the caliber 1227 and 1260 which are all the same diameter. There is also a caliber 1221 which measures 11.5”’.

Calibre number & AS logo under dial. Currently servicing a Carlto dress watch Ca 1945 – 50. 21 jewel version so calibre number reads AS 1220/21. Shock system Incabloc. Good colour and sweep action. Far higher quality finish & engravings than 17 jewel shown

I recently found a Fortis Crosby Field style watch with a stamped movement 1220/1221. The two calibers have different dimensions so when needed which do I go by?

A. Schild stands for impeccable finish and regulation of their portfolio. High enjoyability in owning one or a few calibers of theirs. As good as it gets in this segment.
