I wonder if anyone can help with this wristwatch, owned by my mother and given to her by her own mother. I don't have too much information and I'm not sure how useful the information I do have is, but here goes.
First, poor pictures:
watch-2 | Flickr - Photo Sharing!
The details can not really be seen in the photos, but this is what I could make out:
1: On the inside of the main back case, there is the hall marks and the serial number- G.N, An Omega Shaped Mark, The number 8, which Could also be an S. Then there is the 15k mark, 15 625
2: On the inner case is an inscription which dates the watch to 1914. On the back of this door the same information as on the outer case.
3: The movement has no more than the Stauffer Trade mark, Swiss made with the 3 triangles and SS&CO., and it also has for the fast slow adjuster " AF and RS"
4: On the outside back of the case there is a large Logo or inscription which I don't know what to make of. I think it has an M and an E but it's very hard to make out.
5: The clasp has "Chaincraft" and what appears to be "PV1"
6: If it's of any use, the serial number on the case is 261876
I have no idea about any of this but my mother would be delighted if she could find out some more about the watch. Any information would be greatly appreciated
