What could this be? GIO, GJO GID, GJD?

I haven't seen that before. Do you know what the movement is? That might narrow things down a bit, to a country for example.

Yes I have. I entered those three letter into http://mikrolisk.de and voila:

it is Georg Jacob GmbH (from Leipzig) watch - GJD letters inside a triangle near 12 hour) with DuRoWe 1032, 21 jewel mechanism inside.

Possibly a "marriage" because the watch is older than the mechanism.

I'm not sure about that. I've seen Georg Jacob described mainly as a supplier of watchmaking equipment, the equivalent of Bergeon in Switzerland. Adverts from early 1900s confirm that.

I suspect the company survived into the 1950s, but I haven't been able to prove it. That looks to me like a 1950s watch.

I have found an interesting reference to a work by Georg Jacob GmbH (HG) on Abe Books. The book title is, "Ein Blick - Werk-Erkennung, IV, GTeil: Wecker", and it was published in 1943 by Eigenverlag, Leipzig, in 1943. The details provided (only in German, unfortunately) indicate that this document is some form of brochure or catalogue.

I agree with @spinynorman that your watch does look as if it is a 1950s piece, almost certainly pre-1955, and it will be interesting to find out if Georg Jacob GmbH survived into that period.
