    discovering the heritage of my Eldor Geneve wristwatch

    hello,

    Some time ago I received this beautiful Eldor. Not knowing much about the brand I decided to do some research, unfortunately without much result. Now my question would be if someone could help me with identifying this watch and discover more about it's origins.
    All help is appreciated!

    kind regards

    Pritchard states Eldor as a brand of Bill & CIE. Registered in 1923 and had activities until 1973 mainly in CONUS.Montre Ellis aka Bill&Cie,Eldor Watch Co.Love the strap,looks like matching the era with the watch,1940's timepiece IMO.

    The movement is Swiss, anyway - it's by Fontainmelon (Cal. FHF 150 series):
