    Moritz on Dial
    after cleaning a little bit with a silver cloth I could see some hallmarks on the outside.
    Looks to be II Z (2nd photo) and if my eye's aren't fooling me I actually see 800 ( look at the part that looks like a rocket ship) is that not 800 etched in there...as if part of the etching design.
    Has some beautiful little etched roses.
    4th photo is of inside case with a strange mark that I have positioned in both directions because I'm not sure which way is correct.
    Unadjusted France 17 jewels and it actually works great.

      Beautiful watch! I don't know anything about the watch, but I've always known Moritz as an Austrian name. But, I could be wrong about that.

      when is search "Austrian" no Moritz
      only getting Moritz Grossman

      Online history;
      In the 19th century, Moritz Grossmann found it in a small town in the Ore Mountains: Glashütte. In his atelier there, the exceptionally gifted pioneer developed technically outstanding watch models. ... The beginning of a new era in the name of Moritz Grossmann

      I’d go with JvK. The top one.
