    Help identifying 1950's Hampden 17J French Movement

    Hi All,

    I recently picked up a nice running old Hampden, and I hope someone here can help me identify the movement. The watch is triple signed. Dial reads: Hampden 17 Jewels Shock Protected France Caseback: Hampden Watch Co. France Movement: Unadjusted France Seventeen (17) Jewels Hampden W Co.

    It lights up my Geiger counter, so I am assuming radium hands and dial. Looks like someone has been into it before, but it is keeping great time and easily runs for two days on a single wind. I have searched for similar looking movements by FE and others with no luck. I just want to replace the hands and dial and clean up the case.

    Any help is much appreciated!Name:  IMG_6134.jpg

    Welcome to Watchuseek! You've got a Parennin Cal. 901 (if 25.6mm across - if it's smaller, it would be a Cal. 90):
