    Late 1800's or early 1900's. Medium to lower grade Swiss movement. Probably encased in the US due to duties.

    "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!

    I split the thread into separate posts due to the confusion. (could have done it better but this is the first time I've tried this... I'm amazed it worked at all )
