    Hi and welcome
    It is 'Trench' watch not 'Tranch'
    Meaning they were worn/designed for the trenches in WWI

    Your first piece is surely a ladies watch and surely not a Trench watch, probably the second as well.

    The first piece uses a Lepine movement hence '12' and crown at '3'

    Please tell us the Brevet (patent) number, I can look that up.

    Still searching HS
    Both are Swiss movements
    Regards

    The first movement is not an exact match but looks a bit like a Langendorf calibre:

    Thank you for your comment,you are right its looks a bit like Langendorf,but its very strange this two letters HS,is it possible that maybe HS means Henry Stuart?

    The depose is probably the registered design number about which nothing is known as the records are destroyed on expiry unlike parents.

    Mikrolisk gives quite a few options for HS so that doesn't really tell us much about who made it.
