    Help Identifying and dating Vintage Bovet watch

    Can anyone help me identify or date this Bovet watch? The back has Bovet then Freres & Co. It is on a bracelet, but I don't now if it came that way.

    Welcome to the forum!
    It definitely did not come on a bracelet originally! Leather strap- probably pigskin. And that's what I would suggest for the watch. The Bovet brand still exists. In terms of vintage watches, they're best known for their chronographs. I know of no serial number list for Bovet, but judging by the style of the watch, I guess mid- to late-1940s. Looks like it's missing the second hand.
    Without a picture of the movement, that's as much as I can say for now.

    Welcome to the Vintage/PW forum. I would have to agree - without movement pictures, it is hard to even guess. Looks vaguely late 1940s or early 1950s to me though.
