Hi, I'm a fairly new member and was wondering about a watch I just bought for my wife. It was sold as a Mappin & Webb watch, and I was wondering if anyone knew anything about them? (I know Mappin & Webb as a fairly high class Jeweller, but wasn't aware of them making watches themselves).
(I haven't been able to open it to get a photo of the movement, before anyone asks). It has the Mappin & Webb name etched on the back of the case & stamped on the strap (as well as being on the face of the watch)- on the one hand, I'm curious whether Mappin & Webb did actually manufacture any watches, or whether this is a fake, on the other hand it would strike me as odd to fake a brand that is not necessarily known for its watches?
Anyway, any information would be much appreciated.
Thanks in advance
