I recently recieved a mechanical watch from my father. It belonged to his father who wore it during WWII.
It is a Relide "monarch" appears to be gold plated stainless steel. It is 17 jewels and sates it is waterproof swiss made, antimagnetic incabloc, stainless steel back, with 1152RF stamped on the case.
The face is decorated with a checkered dial, with small rectangular diamonds at the 12, 3, 6 and 9, and smaller rubies at the other hours. The minute and Hours hands also are also covered in rubies.
the face has Relide monarch written on it, and 17 jewels, incabloc and nivafoex spring written underneath.
I would much apreciate it if someone could help me indentify this watch and provide some info about it. I have looked all over the internet and am unable to learn anything about it.
