    Agreed, I have a couple of Tiffany watches and they have nice movements.

    Here is a picture of the movement and a picture of what I think is the serial number.
    Thanks again for any info you can provide.

    After a bit of research I found that is the Swiss patent number, not the serial number.
    I think it might be a Peseux 330 movement. Thoughts?

    Imported into the US by Hilton watch company (A US import company) prior to 1967. Very generic. And very unlikely to have anything to do with Tiffany.

    Yep, I believe that is indeed the case. I have discovered Cartier sold the exact same watch under their brand name during the same time period.

    Considering the Tiffany signed strap and the fact that other houses had similar I find that unlikely to be accurate, but thanks for the reply.

    Well lookie there! Here is an ad Tiffany ran in early 1965. There is my watch in the upper left corner.
    Interesting.

    Not really...the watch in the ad appears to have a very thin and slightly recessed crown, unlike yours. That one in the middle is a closer match. But be realistic; that's probably one of the most common watch styles in the history of watch styles.

    Are you able to find any other "Tiffany and Co" branded watches with Hilton branded movements and hallmarks on the outside of the case?

    You're right about that. It is a common style. Models from Longines, Omega, and a couple of others from that time period look the same or close.

    Yes, I've found a couple of these currently for sale. I also found some examples from Cartier. Now the interesting thing is as we all know this isn't a Hilton made movement it is only marked. Not unusual for Swiss movements of that era. It's all very interesting and fun.
