    Need info on this watch

    So, I’ve been looking for a new vintage watch and I stumbled on this brand. I have no idea if it’s a legit brand. Anyone know it’s history or any resources that I can verify if it could be a knock off or imitation brand? I’ve seen several just like the link below.

    It's not worth anyone's time to knockoff a watch like that. Old here today gone later today type brand

    Condition is poor and certainly not worth $75.00. Honestly. I wouldn't pay $20.00 for it

    You can find better for that price

    It's a legitimate brand. Here are some entries from Mikrolisk.

    According to the Ranfft archive, it is a movement made by the Geneva Sport company (interesting, because at first glance I thought it was an FHF).

    The watch is presumably from the 1950s.

    Geneva did make its own movements. At the time they were mid tear small watch company, similar to Cortebert or numerous other small swiss companies.

    Thank you everyone for the responses! Yeah, that’s not the exact watch I was looking at, I was just curious about the brand itself and wondering where I could get more info. Thanks for the help!
