    I'm not an expert but it doesn't look like an IWC caliber to me. Don't see a serial number anywhere. Looks like 1920s.

    Ah, that sounds likely.

    "The watch has to be surrounded by a history.
    You need more than just a great design. You need to create an atmosphere around the product.
    Who is the company behind it? Why are they using this material?
    People need to be able to identify the watch with themselves. It's based on emotion." - Ralph Furter

    ...that's just my opinion and I've been wrong before and will be again and might be now!

    I've seen this symbol before but I can't find it in my cartouche lists.

    I think it must be from a company that imports watch movements or assembles watches, rather than a watch movement manufacturer
