I need help identifying this watch. It has a manufacture mark, but have been unable to find it. My watch was given to me by my Grandfather around 1975, who in turn got it from his Mother, who recieved it as a gift from the Graf Spee of German Nobility, who she attended to as his personal nurse - so it originated in Germany.
If anyone recognizes the manufacting mark, let me know. Thanks!

    Beautiful moonphase, triple calendar, pin-set watch. I cannot help with the maker, but I believe it is swiss made. No expert here, but sure someone will be along soon.

    This watch is built by James Favre-Fallet in St.-Imier in Switzerland.
    Look at this page: http://www.mikrolisk.de/show.php?site=280&letter=F&searchWhere=trademark&searchMode=exact&id=12#sucheMarker

    The logo was registered on the 16th of January 1890.
    It is a beautiful watch. Congratulations.

    It is a very beautiful watch and very rare. It must have been an expensive one.
