    Any info on this old pocket watch? Logo is an A in a triangle

    This one will need a lot of work to restore; it's missing the crystal, hands and the movement isn't running. But I do think the dial is pretty.

    I'm trying to find out a little about it. The dial has a logo of an A in a triangle. I figured I could find out more by opening the back.

    The inside of the case back has a few marks and numbers, that I can't really make out. The guy at the local watch shop said it's silver.

    On the movement cover (cuvette, right?) is written "Remontoire Cylindre 6 Rubis" -- I know that's a description of the movement; not a maker's name.

    So then it's on to the movement and ... not much more to go on. Again, that logo with an A in a triangle. '1911' is on there, as are "Avance" and "Retard" on the regulator.

    In my limited Internet research, I haven't come across this maker. I'm hoping someone here knows.

    It seems to be a good match to the Alpina 143 movement (Langendorf 550),the Alpina logo has two similar hits in Mikrolisk.that`s pretty much all i can say,other than something looks to be awry under the center wheel.
