Any idea what movement would lie inside this watch? Cal 281? I'm guessing it's from the early 1940s?

Sorry, this is the only pic I've got.

Thanks in advance.

Style is 1940s, but since my crystal ball is away for routine maintenance I can't tell you anything about the movement b-)

Try to obtain more pics.

Yes it does. Maybe this thread should be moved over to the Universal Forum, since I believe that is was is ticking inside both of those GP's.

Thanks for that. Does the seller's description look accurate?

I'm happy for it to be moved to wherever you think is more appropriate.

What forum is that? In general, the brand forums dwell on currently available as new watches. Some are more cognizant of their heritage than others. But few have the level of expertise to discuss vintage watches in detail.

I am surprised much is being made of this watch without any movement pics. Therein lies the real data.

Like what? All we've got is a link to an ebay listing with a similar looking dial. As mentioned, that's the only pic I've got. I understand that without a movement pic it does involve educated guesses - I accept that. I find what other people have said so far helpful, thank you.

Actually without movement pictures it becomes "UNeducated guesses".
Which are kind of irrelevant.

Quite a gamble :) You could end up with a simple wristwatch with removed chronograph movement parts
I know. I was willing to take a punt here. We'll see :)

Anyway, thanks for all the contributions. Yes, I take the point of the importance of movement pics. In this case, the seller was unable to obtain one. She is not a specialist watch seller, as you can see from the listing.

If I get around to it, I'll report back when I receive it and take it to my watchmaker.
