    Help with a 18K Tavannes canteen-ish

    Hello to all,

    I got a wild streak and bought a watch far outside my realm.... Need someone more knowledgeable on this than me. Photos below.

    It is a Francois Borgel cased Tavannes. The movement and case are marked with a dog and the case is stamped "Trusty" - which is the "maker." It is a 18K case that looks like a Borgel attempt at a canteen case. It is missing the screw "top" crown to the canteen. I think the movement is a "Tavannes"/Cyma Cal 216. I don't believe it is a marriage.....but it is an odd duck. Anymore info or any idea of what the screw top should look like would be appreciated.

    Thank you as always,

    Kyle
