    Picked it up just for the name, I like to think that I have a wide knowledge of watches, but I have never seen this brand before or since??? All I can tell you about it is that it has a French movement, I tried looking up the brand but found nothing relevant (well to the watch anyway)

    Very hard to photograph this one... it was a Christmas present from a friend and business associate who is the most crazy vintage Seiko WIS I know. Made in August 1966 which makes it not just a birth year watch for me, but also birth month.

    Many thanks for the kind words guys.
    The watch has massive sentimental value & is now pretty much a safe queen for his little sister (one day)

    I canít even begin to imagine what it is like to lose a child. All the very best for tomorrow, and wear it with pride.

    So a quick backstory, my son Boris was born on Friday 13th January 2012. Due to clinical errors made during his birth he was born in very poor health & passed away 2 days later. My wife pointed out everything we were given in hospital for Boris was green, so for a very special little fighter I set about looking for something special to mark his birth, a green watch, but of course it had to be a special green watch.
    8 months later a mint full set was purchased from Wallace Allan through eBay for £4650
    The watch has great sentimental value now & will be passed down to his little sister one day.

    Many thanks for everybody's kind words

    Thanks. I wish I knew to be honest as I'd buy a few more! There's no name on it unfortunately and I'm sure I asked the previous owner this and he said it was already on the watch when he brought it.

    I can't see it. Has it sold already or did you quickly change your mind!
