    Older Pocket watch info request

    Hello everyone,
    This pocket watch was my late fathers, given to him by my mother on their wedding.
    I can find no mention of it anywhere and am looking for any info that anyone can pass along.
    Please see the attached pictures.

    thank you very much

    Very minimalistic and elegant dial, Swiss made it runs very well and keeps great time ... it is also exceedingly thin ...

    Very nice and simple design. Credos Montres was a watch company from the 50s; Credos Lugran is one of their trademarks. I'd suspect that this watch has a smallish ladies movement inside, which is what allows it to be so thin. We've seen others in the forum with typical Swiss movements from ETA inside. We'd need to see the movement to give you much more detail though; the style doesn't give us too much to work on.

    That is about as thin as pocket watches ever get! Nice
    "Forever is composed of nows." - Emily Dickinson

    "The watch has to be surrounded by a history.
    You need more than just a great design. You need to create an atmosphere around the product.
    Who is the company behind it? Why are they using this material?
    People need to be able to identify the watch with themselves. It's based on emotion." - Ralph Furter

    ...that's just my opinion and I've been wrong before and will be again and might be now!

    Thanks for the info and compliment, I would like to see the movement but me being a little ham fisted, and this watch being so thin, I don't really want to risk it.
