I picked up this old Barr's because I liked the look of it and upon inspection noticed that the 17J movement has Heritage watch Co inscribed upon the bridge -- private label perhaps? However, upon further inspection of the case cap, I noticed that that case cap has Lucerne inscribed upon it -- perhaps just a replacement cap that fit? For all I know, it could be a Frankenstein as the second hand doesn't appear to be original - the min/hour hand are blued steel, whereas the second hand is gold in color.
I'm curious if anyone is familiar with the aforementioned companies and if they've had joint ventures in the past or are one in the same.
Thanks in advance.
