    Need Help Identifying a Vintage Vulcain

    Hi All,

    I am new to the forum and to watch collecting. I came across a vintage Vulcain watch the other day and decided to pick it up. I know a little history about the company through research, but I can't seem to find any information on this particular watch. It is a jeweled mechanical and I did go ahead and get the crystal swapped since it was cracked. I haven't measured it yet, but it runs and seems to be in good shape. If anyone could help me identify model, year or maybe give me information on this watch that would be great. Thanks for your time and I have attached pics. Name:  IMG_5816.jpg

    The movement is French, made by Lorsa.

    French movement in a German case? Doesn't sound like something that Vulcain would have made.

    The movement makes sense, but the stamped case is a little odd. I guess that is why I couldn't locate anything on it. Maybe pieced together from another watch? I appreciate the help, and if anyone else has any ideas I would appreciate it.
