  1. @Balaton1109 thank you I'm guessing it was given to her new then on her 21st .... Interesting stuff though..... Thank you
  2. @spinynorman Thanks .... I'm finding this very interesting Yes I found an identical casing by bucherer My watch has no value other than sentiment and hope my granddaughter will wear it on her wedding day too I'm just finding the history of it fascinating and appreciate your input .... My mother in law got it for her 21st ... I'm sure it had been passed to her ... that was 1950 but I thought it was 1930 watch I will upload the bucherer which is 1930 https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Art-Deco-Bucherer-Swiss-Watch-800-Silver-Marcasite-Case-Cord-Strap-/293896287702?_trksid=p2349624.m46890.l49286 It's only one I've found the same I know mine isn't bucherer but interested to know if the same place made it
  3. @Always"watching" thank you Just read it ....... I understand now @Always"watching" Out of curiosity Is it still possible that although mine has no identity the case could be made by the same person who made the case for bucherer Bit like the same company making a dress for Primark and then the same for marks ... if you get what I mean The casing is identitical .... same stone setting .... etc .....
  4. Thank you so much ..... I've just found another mark in the watch casing Possibly a VI ..... This is fascinating .... I love the watch and it's nice to know some history I wore it once on my wedding day 30 years ago ... and my mother in law wore it a handful of times ... so it's in mint condition other than the tarnish
  5. hi Thanks for replying I'll do the gallery yes it says netonia ns rhod ptd on bracelet on the mechanism it says Swiss and four letters ? Which I think are r a f s I've just gently taken it apart and it does say Swiss on the inside....... and some other letters .... Maybe I should have done that in the first place lol
  6. I've got a lovely inherited watch .... a 1930s marcasite cocktail watch I know it's not worth anything but I'm interested in the history of it I know the bracelet is netonia nickel silver rhodium plated...... But I'm curious to why it has the word " Foreign " on the clock face I'm guessing they are cheap reproductions But curious to why not a country and why the word foreign ..... Thanks in advance
