    triple date Muralt identification please!

    Hey guys, I purchased this watch because I loved the dial. I'm positive the face and crystal have been replaced (or at least refurbished) on account of their pristine appearance. A search didn't produce more than one result of a watchmaker with last name Muralt. It measures 34mm w/o crown.

    One interesting thing I didn't realize when buying it, is that the dial actually spins on the outside where the days are numbered.

    Any info on the brand or movement would be great.






    Sorry if the pics aren't great, I saved them off the ad and am having to do everything through my phone while I wait for the internet at my new apartment.

    I can take better ones later if need be.

    Thanks

    Dave

    Possibly http://www.ranfft.de/cgi-bin/bidfun-...2uswk&FHF_70_3

    Muralt seems to have been a small firm from Obergerlafingen Google Translate - closed in 2005 after the death of the owner, but maybe not trading much for some time.

    This Muralt Watch, Obergerlafingen gives a registration date of 1923.

    Its a super looking watch.

    Any educated guesses on date or info on the movement? I searched the FHF 70 but kept getting threads about different FHF movements.

    And thanks Marrick and zyk1on

    I'd think round about 1950.
