    Image Shack wants me to register to see the pics... WUS once debated requiring registration, limiting what 'guest' accounts can do. We decided not to do it as it would substantially lower traffic counts. ... we were right.

    "The watch has to be surrounded by a history.
    You need more than just a great design. You need to create an atmosphere around the product.
    Who is the company behind it? Why are they using this material?
    People need to be able to identify the watch with themselves. It's based on emotion." - Ralph Furter

    ...that's just my opinion and I've been wrong before and will be again and might be now!

    Yup, looks like a silver watch. Sorry, I don't see the need to register to look at a photo.

    Re: help identify my geneva watch

    Hi there, from looking at the pics, I would have said it has the style of a 50s watch...

    I dont know much about the brand Geneva Sport Watch co.... I found this one that sold recently:

    Geneva Sport Watch Co. Prima'60 Swiss Hi Grade Wrist Watch Perfect Just Serviced | eBay

    As for the movement, I did not recognise it! However, the last pics just shows the end of the cal number under the balance wheel... 0.41 - but I think the full signing with be: GSW 40.41.... on Rolands site its labelled as: Geneva Sport 141

    More info on this link:

    bidfun-db Archive: Watch Movements: Geneva Sport 141

    Hope that helps!
