Old Watch Sunday (made before 1990)

Morning,

Mont Rouge with one of the many variants of the FHF 26. Slightly intrigued by this one, not because I can’t find any other examples, but because I can, and have still never been able to find who actually made the brand.

T’interweb throws up a few Mont Rouges with various movements such as FHF, AS, ETA and Unitas, all signed by different makers such as Teriam, Vetta, Philip Watch, Nivrel, Olma and who knows who else.

And although the jewel count on the movement of this one is mismatched with that on the dial, I can live with that.

Regards.

I’m so pleased to find that someone else has one of these that mine says “Hi”.

Don’t know what’s in yours, but mine runs on a 17j AS/ST 1950/51.

Regards.

Mine has an AS movement also, think you may find they are 60's vintage though not 50's
