Hi and welcome
It is 'Trench' watch not 'Tranch'
Meaning they were worn/designed for the trenches in WWI

Your first piece is surely a ladies watch and surely not a Trench watch, probably the second as well.

The first piece uses a Lepine movement hence '12' and crown at '3'

Please tell us the Brevet (patent) number, I can look that up.

Still searching HS
Both are Swiss movements
Regards

Thank you for your comment,you are right its looks a bit like Langendorf,but its very strange this two letters HS,is it possible that maybe HS means Henry Stuart?

The depose is probably the registered design number about which nothing is known as the records are destroyed on expiry unlike parents.

Mikrolisk gives quite a few options for HS so that doesn't really tell us much about who made it.
