    GS stands for Georg Schmidt - Vienna 1867-1922

    The leo in a cross is the London import mark.

    The U stands for 1915.

    You are probably right. George Stockwell could be the importer.

    Nice to be back.

    I missed the little cut out on top of the shield and that makes the whole difference.

    Must agree, a George Stockwell case from 1915-1916 (hallmark years ended in May as I recall). I mostly know this because I have a trench watch with the same case markings! The movement is an AS, I forget the number.
