That one is a Swiss Fake Tom, still a nice looking piece though. I had a few of these Swiss Fakes over the years and a few of them actual run very wellSmile

I agree with Bila. Swiss fake made to look like a Hampden. Their was a Superior Watch Co. from Pa. and also NY. They used low grade American watch movements and also Swiss movements although I have never seen them use a Swiss Fake movement unless this is one. I don't think it is as they always said Philadelphia, Pa. (I believe) or New York, Ny (I also believe). as I don't remember the cities. I had one of each at one time.

Thanks Bila and Harry!
It needs service which unfortunately the service and a case would cost far more than the watch is worth

Yes, a Swiss fake of poor quality, to my mind.

It is reminiscent of the good quality Superior St movements made by Hampden and marketed by Ball, in his early days.
