this is my first post in the forum.
i have with me, a rather old looking watch. on its dial, it says Fortis Trueline.
so i've done some searches around but i couldn't identify this piece. it would be great if anyone of you guys are able to help..
here's the front face of the watch (strapless). there's a sort of corrosion mark, partially masking the day indicator (which led me to believe the crystal is of acrylic type)
on its case back, the inscription reads.. 30-Jewels Automatic, 6161, Incabloc, Swiss, Waterproof, etc.
when i popped open the case back, it looks something like this.. (excuse me for the poor macro shots.. for this is the best that my phone camera can churn out)
the assembly within has a brass-color look
there is this tiny inscription, that reads "F"(within a cloverleaf shaped symbol, similar to those of ETA) and follows by 4008 (or 400B) as i'm not certain it's a numeric 8 or capital B as the fonts are really tiny.
i've came across some 17-jewels Trueliners.. but i've yet to find one that says 30-jewels.
appreciate all the comment(s) from you all. :thanks
