Been absent for a while persuing other watches. I don't believe we have a "Barclay" on the record yet, so here's one I acquired back in 2010 and am getting ready for sale on my website. Bruce

The caliber 835
Guild movement; Mon, 17 June 2013 19:26
The Gruen 835 was made by Aegler starting approximately in 1924. It is also known as the Rolex 200 or Alpina 835. It is a 6.75 x 11" 15 jewel 4 adj movement bearing patent #+97101. All are marked with the movement number just below the balance wheel. EDIT: I understand that the 835B has interchangeable parts but apparently is a slightly different size. Still trying to find out more info on the 835B
Raised Dial Markers on Quadron
Sun, 16 June 2013 16:36
I have attached pictures of a Quadron that I picked along the way. This dial is different fro me because all the lettering / numbers are raised off the dial. I have not seen this in my short collection time. The middle of the dial seems to have a sterling silver insert as the finish / texture is different.
The caliber 707
Guild-era movement; Sat, 15 June 2013 16:11
The caliber 707 is a 15 jewel movement and is 12-1/2 ligne or 28.4mm in diameter. The caliber 713 is a 7-jewel variant of this movement. Although these are commonly marked on the pillar plate with the caliber number, usually in the space between the escape wheel finger and the balance wheel, occasionally they are unmarked.
The caliber 440
Curvex movement; Sat, 15 June 2013 16:01
The caliber 440 is 17 jewels and is 8-3/4 x 9-3/4 ligne or 19.4mm x22mm. It is the third Curvex movement that was produced by Gruen and shares parts with the caliber 430 and 435. This caliber is clearly marked with the number in the space between the barrel bridge and the balance cock.
The caliber 330
Curvex movement; Sat, 15 June 2013 15:54
The caliber 330 is 17 jewels and is 7-3/4 x 11 ligne or 17.2mm x 24.81mm. It is the second Curvex movement that was produced by Gruen. This caliber is usually marked with the number next to the mainspring barrel on the exposed underside of the top plate.
The caliber 410
Thu, 13 June 2013 20:47
This is the caliber 410, a 17 jewel movement that is 10.5 ligne or 23.7mm in diameter. Almost all parts will interchange with others in the 405-series. The only difference between the 410 and the 420 is the size; other wise it is fully interchangeable. These movements are always marked with the caliber number in the space next to the balance wheel and the cap jewel for the escape wheel.
