Clearing out my father's closet upon his death, and found out he was a closet watch geek.
I have several inquires, so one at a time:
I have a Universal man's wristwatch, with an inset second movement at the 6 oclock position. Leather strap. I have a receipt noting the following:
(written in ink)
Universal Watch co.
630 Fifth Avenue N.Y.C
Date: 10 April 1946
Montre No. 11245
(this matches the number on the back of the case)
The front of the receipt is in French, not my first language. But, the main part says:
Manufacture des montres
Preet & Berthoud S.A.
Hrologers depus 1894
Garantissent cette montre contre tout defaut de fabrication.
Any opinions what I have here?
