    Mappin

    I won this very nice condition manual wind Mappin on e-bay last week. Sorry I have no information on this watch. "Cal of the movement / age" It looks like a 1950s / 60s watch.

    Apart from the worn crown, it looks absolutely pristine! Almost NOS. I think we can exclude a redial on such a relatvely no name brand. The movement is a Fontainemelon Cal. FHF 96-4 or related movement.

    It's definitely a Fontainemelon movement. The precise movement code should be under the balance wheel.

    Seeing the "Mappin" name the first thing I think of is the British firm Mappin & Webb; wondering if there's some sort of connection there.
