    Another private label movement ID if you don't mind. This one has a logo that hopefully someone will recognize.

    Dave, you have a 3/4 plate movement made by either JJ Badollet or C.H. Meylan, most likely Badollet, perhaps for Meylan. I can't quite make out the serial number. Please let me know what it is so that I can record this watch in my Meylan serial number database. FYI, #33,945 is another Gaven, Spence PL Badollet, Meylan, of Badollet-Meylan. Your watch is the only other Gaven, Spence I've seen.
