Agree. The use of case screws to secure the movement, and back-accessed knife-edge dial screws are both older design features that you don't see often in post-war watches. Now I'm curious about the Cuppilard factories, and what happened to them during the war itself. I believe their main factory was in Besançon, France, which was part of the German Occupation zone as of 1940. One wonders if the factory continued to operate, or were inactive until after the war?The early 1960s is definitely not the period this watch was made in. No, that's late 1940s, given the looks, and the lack of a shock device. No results for Loral in Mikrolisk... Private label brand?
