Not Pierre Cardin.
P Carda? (I can not see the last letter.


Can you please take pics of the movements?

I like the first one. 1940-50ies?

Nice Marvin. Art Deco. late 1920ies -late 1930ies.

Unless my eyes are going, that sure looks like an A in "Cardan", which doesn't bode well. The movment looks similar to a FHF 69 (or a close relative): http://www.ranfft.de/cgi-bin/bidfun-db.cgi?10&ranfft&a&2uswk&FHF_69. I'd guess just a generic swiss mid grade watch cased by someone hoping to cash in on the growing fame of a certain young italian designer.

I can't tell, but is there a three letter code on the balance cock?

I'll try and cheer you up on the first one. That looks rather like a sort of fused "DITIS" with the crossbar of the T covering both Is. If so, it should be reasonably renowned. Paul Ditisheim sold watches under a variety of brand names, the most famous being "Solvil" and "Titus" but another being "Ditis". These have high quality generic movements but are slightly more sought after than similar no name brands.

The Marvin looks like it might be from the 1930s.
