Hello all,
I got this from my wife's aunt, who lives in France. Quite an unusual Gold plated Valmon. It's a 17 jewel, ETA 980 movement. Just wondering if anyone has heard very much about them.

Nice - looks rather 1950s. "Valmon" was a brand of Alexandre Miron Valentin / Cesar Watch SA of Geneva and Grenchen (registered in 1954).

Thanks Hartmut, this should get me in the right direction. Is this in any way related to the Sorna Valmon? I read some posts without replies, but wasn't sure if they were in any way related. Thanks again.

I am not sure but I doubt it. Sorna Watch was a company of E. Schenker, also in Grenchen (but that is a big watch city, also being home to ETA and Certina and in the old days Adolf Schild, Nivada and others) but also in Delemont but not in Geneva so I doubt that the two are related.
