Enlarge the movement picture and take a close look at the balance cock. It may be fine but it's not fine with me.

Neil,

I totally agree that attribution is important and I agree with your characterization of your watch for an eBay description. I do not agree that attribution is always easy or even possible tho ...

JC - it is too crude for Touchon. Touchon level of finish is much better.

I've also never seen a Touchon that didn't have wolf's teeth

Just look even at Tiffany Touchons. Many of them and espec ...

Well, it looks like Bryan gets the Cigar!

Its Agassiz! (at 3 oclock on the movt).

Again, imported through Touchon...their agent in the US and with whom they merged at some point.

I guess it ...

I'm betting Agassiz - pull the dial and see if the fish is on the PP

Interestingly, many of the Audemars Piguet watches that Touchon imported were marked AP under the dial. Whoever made it, I still ...

Thanks John!

I remember owning a Touchon, but it was marked "Touchon" on the movt and dial and did not look anything like above.

Again, I don't think Touchon, even though they sort of acted like ...

I'm going for Touchon. Touchon was not really a maker but an importer and around this time they seem to have been the importer for Louis Elysée Piguet of Le Brassus, Switzerland. Louis Elysée Piguet ...

Wow Ray. I am glad you have this one. This movement is a wonder. The pillars are amazing.

Keith,

The Lewis Samuel is a wonderful looking movement in so many ways. It is an example of why well preserved gilt movements are the best. Also the engraving and finishing is top notch. I love it ...
