Hello! My name is Giulia, I'm living in Milan. Some days ago I found this pocket watch. I would know something more about it because I'm not expert.
It looks old, but running. A watchmaker tell me that it seems done approximately in 1930 and the material is steel.
Inside the cover I can read "33005", on the mechanism "15 rubis"
Thank you so much for the assistance!

Welcome to the Watchuseek forum. I am sorry that noone seems to have enough knowledge to reply but you seem to have given a fair amount of the info yourself. Yes, the watch is very likely from the inter-war era and has a high quality but probably generic movement with 15 jewels (17 is the practical maximum for a watch of that type but the centre wheel is unjewelled). Bovet still exist and are located in Fleurier. They used to do a fair amount for the chinese market. Their currrent "hallmark" is placing the crown at 12:00, even in wristwatches (which makes it slightly difficult to wind them).
