    Need Help Identifying A Watch Symbol

    Can anyone tell me which Swiss watch company uses or used a symbol on its movements that resembles a double winged "angel" figure with two stars? I'm looking at an otherwise unlabeled Swiss mechanical wind watch movement. It is inscribed with these words: "15 jewels", "Swiss Made", "5/400". The above mentioned angel figures are on the main gear wheel.

    Can you post a picture. We'd have a better chance that someone might be able to identify the movement for you.

    Hmmmm...sounds like Rotary. Not sure about the stars, though.

    Thanks for the piccie. Mine is a little later - medium grey dial with a darkish blue ring close to the outside, sort of late sixties/early seventies stuff. All in a kind of tonneau case (but with round dial and crystal). Still, nice watch you've got there!
