    Movement pics would help a whole lot. The style is a 70's one.

    You need more than just a great design. You need to create an atmosphere around the product.
    Who is the company behind it? Why are they using this material?
    People need to be able to identify the watch with themselves. It's based on emotion." - Ralph Furter

    ...that's just my opinion and I've been wrong before and will be again and might be now!

    This is what Mikrolisk Mikrolisk - was Feines für die Tasche... - Das Informationsportal rund um die Taschenuhr! gives:

    Trademarks of BOILLAT, FLUVIUS (1 trademarks) shows the Fludo trademark and says 'Dead circa 1972' and Results for owner:FLUVIUS BOILLAT - Boliven Trademark Search gives the file date as 02/11/1972 - (which would be February as its a US site). There's a nice doctor's watch by Fludo described here: bidfun-db Archive: Wrist Watches: 201: Gents Fludo Doctors Manual-Wind Chronograph, ca. 1955 n.o.s.

    Ranfft Watches, US Import Codes shows that the import mark for the USA might be DZM.

    This USPQ - Bureau of National Affairs (Arlington, Va.) - Google Books shows a snippet of a US bureau refusing to register Boillat's Fludo trademark in 1951 as it was too like Flevo.

    That's all I could find.

    When you say movement, do you mean the inside of the watch?

    Don't you need a special tool for that? Well I guess I take it to the local jeweler to open it and ask him to a picture of it. This will take a few days. I'll post when mission complete. Thanks

    There is a sticky for that! Stickies are posts at the top of the forum and in the Links and Articles section. They are full of interesting stuff...
