    Not an expert on them, someone will probably provide you some coments. Is that the only picture you have? Is the watch working properly?

    Yes, sure I have some more. Seller mention it was made in late 1950s. I did not find any similar models on the web. It just was serviced and keep good time. Name:  s-l160044.jpg

    It could be an early 1960s model with a Cal. 2511 or 2521 but I agree, it looks a little more like a late 1950s model with a Cal. 106 or possibly a Cal. 126 or Cal. 40 (although the small seconds does seem to be a little far in for one of the larger calibres). I think it might be an old redial since the indices of the subseconds do not extend to the edge evenly but that might be a trick of the angle of the shot. As for value, it's worth as much as anyone is willing to pay for it - the overall condition plays far too large a part to be able to tell and we haven't even seen the insides yet, nor do we know whether it works at all or works well, etc.

    Do you think it should be more?

    Does it have a case number? That could help to tell where it was made. Since it is missing the 'swiss made' on the dial, it could be a cal. 106 from Besançon.

    Inner side of the case has a signing "Swiss made" nothing more.

    The sellers description states Cal 40.
