    Gold plated case with stainless steel back.

    Movement is a 17J from the ST 96 family

    Is the brand "Creation"? It's a little hard to see in the photo.

    I have a GP Creation watch with a Felsa 4009 automatic movement.

    Seem to be mid-level watches.

    It looks extensively upjeweled, and seems to lack any indication of jeweling on the movment itself; suggests it was one of the movements designed to skirt import duties.

    What?! That movement has at least two extra jewels (cap stones on the gearwheels) compared to the one in Ranfft's database.

    Yeah. I thought I had seen a more similar movement under FHF (which became ST) or something, but I couldn't find it when I looked for it.

    Found the one I was thinking of but there are enough slight differences in bridge shape that I don't think it's the one in the watch
