    Thanks for posting and welcome. it looks like a generic 17J model from the 1960s. We'd need to see the movement to conclude much more.

    It is probably French. The movement is from FE (France Ebauches), something like a Cal. 140:

    In my experience, the "pitting" decoration is quite characteristic of FE movements, although it is not found in all of them and it is not exclusive to them.
