I`ve just had this new arrival drop on my doormat and would be grateful for any assistance in identifying either the maker or the movement as I can find no identifying marks.
The watch is very good appearance wise and also keeping good time so far (only been on my wrist a few hours so far tho)
An eagle -eyed member on here (Vintage 1982) spotted that the movement is missing it`s cap jewel so ideally I want to find out both who produced the movement and where I could source a replacement jewel so that I don`t damaged the watch if I wear it semi regularly.
A fragment from the original jewel is still in place and I`m guessing that the watch may have been dropped at some point using the jewel to break.
I think the watch may then have been consigned to a drawer for years awaiting repair as the case shows very little sign of regular wear - maybe it was for "Sunday Best" ?
The case back inscription gives a date clue as does this mark inside the case back:
Thanks to Mikrolisk it seems to be that of Kessi Freres SA and also registered in 1931 as Bielna SA .
I assume this relates to the case manufacturers only though . Case is marked rolled gold. 20 microns.
Much as I enjoy collecting Vintage watches I`m no good on movement identifying and would be grateful for any insights and guidance on both the history and hopefully repair of my new piece.
