    The Tavannes (pronounced "Ta-VAHN") Watch Company was a large and prolific Swiss manufacturer, located in the town of Tavannes, producing a wide range of watches in a wide range of quality, and under various brands in addition to Tavannes. Other Tavannes brands that I recall include Cyma and Tacy (a combination of TAvannes and CYma). There were others which I don't recall, as well as "private labels such as your Crest.

    any value to the Crest?

    If it was mine, I wouldn't take less than $100, list it on E-bay with high reserve and see what it would bring. There are several watch collectors on this sight, check back later and I'm sure someone else will have something to add. There is some really good experts that might have a suggested value for you. Again thanks for sharing this piece.
