I am working thru some of my old watches and have some questions on this particular one that is an inherited watch.
I know that it predates the great war but can not get a more accurate date on it.
The movement has 'Baume Geneve B&L' written on it along with the serial number 25243. This serial number also appears on the movement back and the watch back. The watch is keeping good time (gains 1 min per day).
On the watch back we have '18k 25243' aa written on it.
The watch came from my UK family, so would have originally been purchased there.
My questions are :
Does anyone recognise this watch movement - it looks fairly standard to me.
B&L - this is a strange thing to see on the movement. Any idea what this is?
Is there anything in this detail that allows us to put a more accurate date on the watch?
Do I have anything 'special' here apart from sentimental value and the value of the gold?
Thanks for any opinions!
