    Help ID段ng vintage Ernest Borel movement and approximate age of watch

    Hi all,

    Found this amongst the few vintage watches left to me. It is in fairly good condition and doesn稚 appear to be a redial. Movement is still in working order. Just haven稚 sent it to my watchmaker for a service (yet).

    It appears to be a rather small sized watch . The case appears to be 32mm and my dad says that he wore it for a while but that it was given to him by a relative as a watch to be handed down further to the next generation after (which it has been).

    Any hints as to the approximate age and the movement name/number would be greatly appreciated.

    Dial


    Case back


    Case back inside


    Movement

    What appears to my eyes to have a swan neck regulator on it. 17 jewels Swiss Made is engraved on it along with the number 22 within a square in the middle between the two big jewels. Cannot for the life of me find a movement number using my loupe. The balance has weights/screws on it which are in motion in this picture (hence difficult to see).

    I believe it's an FEF 350 or 380 depending on size (23-24mm or 25-26mm, respectively as described in the links below). It's just an ordinary regulator; no swan's neck or other high precision mechanism that I see.
