I believe this watch to be french.
On the face it reads Chronometre.
On the inside one side reads Metal Argente.
I take this to mean the watch is silver grade
unknown.
The other side is stamped with images of
medallions and the words Remonitor
Perfectionne. This refers to the winding
mechanism as being of high quality.
On the movement there seems to be a stamp of some
kind of bird.

The rooster (cock) stamp is French and was made in the village of Chateau-Thierry. From a french reference book, reprinted from 1850. Regards, Neal Nicely
