    Help identify Precimax pocket watch please

    I have a Precimax pocket watch that was given to me as a gift when I was younger. I know nothing else about it, can anyone else help me identify this watch.

    Sorry - can't say too much without movement pictures. All that is certain is that it is more modern, probably post WWII right up to the quartz crisis (seventies) since it has Incabloc shock proofing and because of the general case style. He fact that it lacks a second hand suggests a small movement - possibly even rather smaller that the watch.

    Dear,
    Is it a possibility that it is a nurse's watch?
    as the chain bow is at the 6 o'clock position???
    might be a posibility!
    I would date it in the 60's

    regards,
    RJ van melle.

    I agree with RMelle,

    I think it's a nurse's watch.

    And yet it hasn't got a second hand. I would have thought that would have been essential for pulse timing.

    So I popped it open and took a pic of the movement. It is kind of hard to read but the incriptions says "17 JEWELS SWISS MADE"

    Well, the movement is by Peseux, something like the Cal. 320 or 330 series:

    This series does serially have a small second hand so it must have been dropped. Probably due to design reasons - it is a savonette movement and in a lepine watch, the small second would end up on the right of the dial instad of below at around 6:00. Probably a ladies' pendant watch but without a second hand, probably not a nurse's watch.
