    had to make new post to get pictures to show of the clockwork... The first pic is from the watch on the first two pics on my older post. It has a inscription inside the lid , think its 5997pg , but not 100% if thats correct. The three next pictures if from the last to pics on older post, and has an inscription " cylinder & rubis" on the outside of inner lid + "8852 6 metal" on inside of outer lid. On the clockwork inside it has a inscription " avance retard" and "dapose". Hope this made sense :) Thanks for any further information about age, production and maybe any value :)

      The Key wind watch on the right.advance/retard is just French for fast/slow.depose simply means "registered", as in a trade name or mark.8 rubis means 8 jewels in the movement.cylinder means the watch has a cylinder escapement.I think the crescent moon and star are alloy marks it signifies Swiss .800 out of 1000. There is no way of knowing who made this watch,or when.typical of many old French/Swiss watches.I hope I am correct,and this helps.
