    Looking for identity of watch name

    Hello, I'm hoping someone can help me out with the name on the front of this watch. I can't for the life of me figure out the spelling. Erkania? Crkania? Crrkania? When I do a google search, none of those names come up. Thank you in advance for any information.

    There is an Erkania, Rudolph Karstadt AG, watches, watchparts, Essen, Germany. They were registered in 1960, but the watch definitively looks older... They were also more (exclusively) active in the area of clocks. The Kreisler band is USA - strange...

    Here is (was) one on offer on a Germany website, but no hint whatsoever about the makers of this watch, but it does exist, very much like your, perhaps with an identical movement. German markings on the back, so it might be the German company.

    Looking for identity of watch name

    The kj with arrow on the back refers likely to the casing maker. In this case Kollmar & Jourdan, Pforzheim. Not my wisdom. Found it on swiss watch forum. (https://forum.watchtime.ch/viewtopic.php?t=40252)

    Well, the movement's German too, from Pforzheim too and dates to "1933-1958 (all generations)":

    bidfun-db Archiv: Uhrwerke: PUW 8.75x12''' neu

    ...so a manufacture date in the late fifties and a purchase date around 1960 is still plausible.
