Actually, she bought this when we were still dating, so she's had it for about a year now. I know she got it from a shop in Brooklyn, like a boutique type place, for $12. I was impressed because it actually has a Swiss Made manual movement, instead of a chinese quartz with a spacer. This leads me to believe that it's a bit older.
She has lots of jewelry, and I haven't seen this in a while. So I dug it out last night and wound it up. I didn't make too much of a fuss in setting it, or timing it since, but know it's keeping respectable and accurate time.
The dial says "Chateau" "antimagnetic" "swiss made."
The movement say "E.Gluck Trading Co" "1 Jewel Swiss Made unadjusted."
The inside of the caseback says "E.Gluck trading co swiss made" "base metal"
I've seen some other Chateau brand watches, and am pretty sure they're American, but would be taking way too much of a shot in the dark to try and date the movement with any kind of certainty. I also wouldn't be surprised if the movement were taken from a different piece, and placed in this case, for a vintage look.
Either way, I think it's cool, and pretty nice quality. It's also got a good looking case to it as well. It'd be nice to find out any more about it, if anyone knows anything, and I showed her the movement tick when I had the case back off, which she thought was cool as well.
take care now
