    Please Help Very old Monopusher

    Hello, In hopes I have posted to the right place. I am seeking help from well seasoned collectors on a watch I just purchased. Need to know make and movement, and in hopes that somebody here will recognise this watch. All information is greatly appreciated. https://m.ebay.com/itm/WW1-TRENCH-mi...app-cvip-panel

    Moved from Public to Vintage & Pocket Watch forum. Sellers hyperbole and low feedback count concern me.

    I understand the concern. It was a cheap buy, and usually don't listen to sellers blah. I see the watch as a challenge and cool piece. Hopefully someone can give me info on it.

    I'm afraid that you've been had, IMO. For a start, that watch is far too recent to be a trench watch! I'm not sure what the earliest date for that one is but it may well be post WWII, let alone WWI. For another thing, the movement is a cheapo pin lever with only the most basic chronograph so it would be pushing it for 70 bucks if it was in working condition. And since it isn't working, lacks all hands and shows signs of distinct wear, it might be just a parts watch and therefore ought to be rather cheaper than it is.

    The movement looks like it ought to be by BFG (Baumgartner), possibly a slightly more complicated version of this one:

    I know it's not a Trench. The swing lugs and look "not movement" look a lot like a 1932 Breitling monopusher. Have seen others with almost the same dial from that era. Nothing post WWII.

    Them lugs and case are all wrong, but hey, at least you known it ain't a re-rial
    Always give a word or a sign of salute when meeting or passing a friend, even a stranger, when in a lonely place. Show respect to all people and grovel to none.

    Well, if you're lucky, you'll get to see some cool Finnish stamps on the package.
