    Still rummaging in my French box today for this 33mm FeDeX with its 17j ETA 2409.

    Utterly pointless making any internet searches for this brand, unless you want to know all there is to know about a certain Carrier. Most helpfully, Mikrolisk records it as having been from Briot et Cie who were founded in 1913 in Charquemont on the Franco-Swiss border. In 1959 the company became Briot-Amstutz and whilst some rabbit holes suggest a later, indirect, connection with Fresard (perhaps not too surprising, given the location) any further research will need to await another day.

    Regards.

    Left: original 1947 Gotham ad taken from a US magazine, hanging over my workbench. Right: my timekeeper of today, Gotham watch (Ollendorff Watch Co., New York) from around the same time 20mm x 32mm (yes, that was a gents watch in those days!).

    I wonder if J.K. Rowling was inspired by that ad. It has a Harry-Potterish vibe.

    Monopusher chonograph cal. Valjoux GHT, early or mid thirties. The Valjoux GHT movement is related to Valjoux 22 - actually, it seems to be its first version. The most obvious differences are the pushers and the number of teeth on the column wheel: one pusher for GHT, two pushers for 22; six teeth for GHT and nine for 22.

    According to Herr Ranfft, Valjoux begun to manufacture these GHT/22 movements in 1914; since 1936, they were produced with two pushers.

    The guy below is not a "true" vintage: only its movement is old. Case and dial were custom-made, including the see-through caseback. I picked it for me, nevertheless, because it looks really nice on the wrist and it bears a really rare and beautiful movement.
