    The movement is an Amida, cal. 5111 (one jewel version). The link below features the 5 jewels version and with a KIF shock protection:

    Alfex (the makers/assemblers of this watch) is a Swiss company having put in this cheap version of a rather cheap movement.

    And 'Hermes' has been used as a model designation by many. The guy fits really everything, he has been the Greek God of trade, heraldry, merchants, commerce, roads, thieves, trickery, sports, travelers, and athletes (according to Wiki, but I remember from school that there had been a few more things he was 'responsible' for).

    Altogether from the 1980s, and yes, the statement 'not really a desirable piece & it being ladies.....' is absolutely correct, unless it's a family heirloom.

    To me it looks like a cheap knock off but I did note the face, inside back & movement state Swiss Made. Personally, I wouldn't afford it a second look.

    Well, I hope you meant wanted to sell it. Point 1: no Sales talk in open forum. Point 2: I think that you'd be lucky to get a fiver for that thing! Unless you intended to rob someone of his/her cash.....

    In any case, for the above reason: Thread closed.
