    GAY&CO Vintage Watch, caliber ID?

    Hello Guys!
    I've obtained this little gem today, but i can't determine who made this watch. There is completly zero informations about this manufacturer/retailer in the web. Watch itself is very well made, it is waterprotected via screwback and seal under it which was not so common feature. The movement is signed with "M" and swiss made 15 jewels. If anyone can share some knowledge about this example ill be very thankfull.

    As for the movement, try this one:

    bidfun-db Archiv: Uhrwerke: FHF 28

    ...but I can't find anything on the maker.

    You are prodobably right with the caliber ID, thats why there are no maker marks on the movement because it's hidden under the dial. Mine is 15 jewels variation. Thanks for the input.

    Looks like it came off a belt-sander.

    "GAY & Co" sounds like it could be a private label for a jeweler.

    Ok guys, thanks for the help. As you pointed the brand name can be the name of jeweller which was known locally.
