    Can you help me find out what this is?

    Hi, my friend at work has a watch that was his mother's and he took it into a jewellers and they couldn't figure out what type of watch it is. Anyone know?

    Hello ! The movement looks like a cortebert ébauche, from its style I would say made in the 1920s or early 1930s.

    Oh and do you see the letters "G F" on the bracelet's clasp ? It looks like a Gay Frères "Souplex" bracelet.

    Hi thank you for your replies! This is in the only thing I could find inscribed in the bracelet! I can barely make it out with the naked eye.

    Hmmm, hard to read indeed... There's no other inscription when you open the clasp ?
    If the bracelet is original at least we know this watch was made after 1918 when this "Souplex" system was patented.
    Anyway the movement is very nice, I love the perlage :)

    A clear photo of the inner case back might be revealing in terms of date. Does that say 9ct on the bracelet clasp? Upside down in your photo.
