    Woman’s Favre Leuba with surprise

    Hey guys
    I got this beautiful looking Favre Leuba Prima. The watch and dial appears original and in great shape.

    It came on this gorgeous little Fixoflex ( never thought I’d say that about a Fixoflex)
    Anyone know what all the words mean? I know some but not others.

    So what’s the surprise I hear you say??
    Well take a look at the movement


    Inside sits a lovely Cortebert 425. I know absolutely nothing about Cortebert so anything would be good.
    I’m also gonna ask FL and Cortebert and see what they come back with.
    Thanks

    'I’m also gonna ask FL and Cortebert and see what they come back with. '

    Cortebert closed its doors for good in the early 1970s. Would be difficult to find someone around today.

    I literally just saw that on the net.
    Oh well hopefully someone can chime in with some helpful information.

    Surprise or franken?

    The real surprise is the band, one marking for every link. Write the info down somewhere before you take out a link.

    Bracelet markings are mostly repeated in different languages stating gold plated and patent pending.

    Maker appears to be Rodi and Wienenbergerr

    That is definitely the money shot. If it was still the 1980s you could wear it inside-out.
