    Can somebody help me identify this watch

    Hello I'm new to the site so hopefully I'm not doing anything wrong by posting in this section I received this watch from an auction and I cannot find any Maker's Mark all icy inscribed in the back is Goldsmith's VIP service stores and I'll put down a couple pictures it's a non-magnetic incabloc. It also has the numbers 1806 in between the lugs at the six position under the sub dial also the inside of the case back is marked 31806

    It may be a movement inside a case of different manufacture, which was common at one time, and the norm in the early days of watchmaking; plus lots of movements have later been put in different cases for a variety of reasons, everything from an owner wanting to upgrade to a more contemporary style case, to people with access to old parts putting together "frankenwatches" in an attempt to defraud buyers of vintage watches. I've seen cases that were sold by watch and jewelry industry suppliers, with their own markings in them - whoever actually made them - which watch repairmen and jewelry stores could then use to re-case older movements or even to build their own new watches with standard movements.
    I'm more interested in the styling of my watches, than the quantity:
    Everyday
    : Contemporary Omega De Ville Prestige Co-Axial Power Reserve 39.5 mm, steel on black leather strap, blue dial with Roman numerals, sub seconds and reserve, 424.13.40.21.03.001 cal. 2627 (2500D) - great timekeeper, but about to go to the OB for a rotor grinding noise 2.5 years out
    Dress: c. 1989 EBEL 1911 cal. 93 35mm automatic 14K and steel on bracelet, slate gray dial with Roman numerals, sweep seconds; early 20th century Hamilton cal. 987s in colored gold cases on leather and reptile bands, sub seconds
    Legacy: 1920 IWC early sav. cal. 82 in original 33mm Cresarrow 14k octagonal case on tan leather strap; 1943 Omega cal. 30T2PC Ref. MI 2317 35mm steel on black leather strap, sub seconds; various inherited and collected vintage wrist and pocket watches
    Current project watch: early EBEL Sport Classic Carree wave tank watch cal. 91 quartz 24x30mm (ref. 181902)

    Sorry, can't tell who made watch, but the movement kinda looks like something from the FHF 150 family bidfun-db Archive: Watch Movements: FHF 150
