    That F over B logo in that sheild is listed in my Bestfit book as FORSTER. There is no listing in Roland Ranfft's movement archive for this maker. This is the first time in all my years of collecting and repairing watches that this name has come up! I know nothing about the company.

    Sorry I can't help, but you've got an interesting jump-hour watch. Unfortunately, where the winding rotor is in the photo is covering the balance wheel. A lot of manufacturers put the movement number under that wheel.

    Thank you for the informatiom DragonDan and Doug. I checked the movement and you are right there is some information under the edge of the balnce wheel and inside edge, of the case rim. Unfortunately it is covered by the rim of the balance and just on the edge of the case itself. I am unable to read the print.

    Hi Harold,

    it is a F÷rster 211:

    The trouble when seaching this manufacturer is the ÷. I guess I should make the search algorithm a bit more tolerant.
