    Without a positive identification you would be misleading yourself and others. It could have a marking on the top plate.

    I totally agree. This is similar to the "poor man's Hauer" hype, conflating Wittnauer with Longines, Wakmann with Breitling, etc. Sometimes there may be a connection, but without evidence, these claims should not be made.

    Re: Is it a LeCoultre

    as already said is a caliber of H. Parrenin. Lecoultre has a similar caliber but has never used a click-spring in that position.
    this click-spring was patented by Parrenin

    Re: Is it a LeCoultre

    Hi, I found this thread regarding LeCoultre and hoped someone may be able to identify my grandfathers pocket watch as we've been told it may be a LeCoultre Ebauche... It's stamped 18k Gold but doesn't seem to have any recognisable hallmark / logo. It does have what appears to be a cross with sun rays surrounding it but after doing some research I couldn't find this logo anywhere online. It's such a beautiful watch, any help on identification would be much appreciated. Kind regards, Andrew.

    Welcome to Watchuseek. I'm afraid we won't be able to help you much without a picture. The only such logo which I can find in Mikrolisk (www.mikrolisk.de) is associated with Louis Macquat but they apparently only made hands for watches. On the whole, piccies are worth a thousand words.

    I actually love the the horrible red numbers or maybe it's just me.

    Hi, I do have images of the watch... but unfortunately it won't let me post any images or links as I don't have enough posts yet. Not sure if there's a way around this? There is what looks to be a serial number on there which is 201035.
