    That watch is probably measured in the Lignes system but don't know the crossover.

    At this size this is probably a ladies' lapel watch or, if a bottom lug is missing, a ladies wristwatch. 12/0 in the American system is about equal to 9 lignes in the Swiss system.

    After I received your message, I took a close look at the bottom next to the hinge and sure enough, I see where it looks like a pin or something was filed off! Thank you for this. Is there any value with this as I can not find anything listed anywhere and they must be scarce. Thanks

    Enrico, how in the world did you find this out? I wish that you were here instead of Italy because I would like to sit and have a coffee with you and you can tell me stories about your knowledge of watch's. Wow, I am impressed. This being a very small wrist watch, how did ladies' managed to see the time? Have you ever seen one like it listed anywhere? Thank you very much.
