    All I can say is that it looks like early sixties to me and has an FHF (Fabrique d'Horlogerie Fontainemelon) movement in it, something like the Cal. 96:

    I have seen the same watch with the brand names of Butex and Titus. I suspect that at the time, the FHF 96, was like the ETA 2824-2 is today. A standard ebauche that factories would stick into standard cases. In other words a solid workhorse.
