    Need info on vintage Baume et Mercier!

    I just received this from the 'Bay recently and I was just wondering if you can give me some info on this watch. All I know is that it's hand-wind, triple date, and golden sunburst dial. Thanks!

    Looks like 1950's calendar watch with replaced hands, crown and some corrosion apparent. Popular style back then and several companies made them. The dial doesn't seem to sit right in the case. What did the description say? Where was the seller located?

    The dial may be missing a reflector ring.

    Looks like a franken watch (composed of parts from several different watches) judging by the mismatched finish on the bridges. Inclined to doubt it's actually B&M, but even if it is, the visible corrosion would scare me aware unless it was being sold for parts for cheap.

    Hi and welcome.
    A lot of negative comments that I have to add to, the dial does not look to fit fully (correctly) in the case?
    Franken?

    I just received the item and I don't truly know if the dial fits the case. I'm still new to watches so I do not know too much.Name:  ImageUploadedByTapatalk1411754111.161291.jpg

    Those "markers" look like they were added with a dremel. Notice how the marker at 3 goes past the chapter ring while the one at 9 stops at the edge? It also looks wider, but that could be just a paint effect.
