    Roehrich, Audemars Piquet or Borel?

    I need some help identifying this because it's got three different brand marks. It's 32mm stainless steel and runs like a top even though there is no evidence of a service. The face is marked Jean Louis Roehrich, which was an American importer of Audemars Piguet. It has the Import code ROR stamped on the movement which is an AP import code, but the movement is marked Borel Fils and Co. So who made this movement?

    The import code was assigned to to the importer, not the manufacturer. Watches of the same brand, imported by two different companies, would have different codes. So no, the import code does not make it an Audemars Piguet. It just indicates that the movement was imported by Roehrich. Did they also import Borel? Possibly at some point they could have.
    The movement is generic, an AS, I think. It's not an AP movement.
    And I don't think that it's a military watch. Lumed Arabic numerals and baton hands don't make a watch military. It is sometimes being referred to as military-style, but "military watch" is pretty much reserved for watches officially issued to military personnel, or marketed as a watch recommended as a private purchase for the military personnel.
