It Has 6 jewels, cylinder escapement, runs well and keeps reasonable time.
Looks to be about 14s.

Here's a closeup of the only marking.
Looks like it was double stamped.
Maybe says L F F.

Thanks,
Steve

Those letters are missing a bit Steve, it is J.F.F for "Jos. Faivre Fils (the last bit meaning the Son)". Also, that is one of their registered trademarks, which first appeared in 1887 Smile

Bila,

There are service marks in the back cover that look like dates, and the initials M J.
Numbers are- 4/93 , 7/96 , 6/1900 , 5/08 , and 8/13.

Thanks! Smile Smile

Steve
