    This is a nice looking watch case and movement, to bad its not running.
    I was wondering if anyone knows who made this watch case.
    Thanks
    Jay

    My guess would be New England watch company. Likely housed a Cavour.

    Although, I primarily have dollar watches (many not runners), I do have a Molly Stark that I wear occasionally. Hopefully you can get yours going.

    Thanks, I see that they were only in business for 1 year. Did they just make cases for New England watch company.
    Is this a gold filled case.

    Thanks Rob that is a great resource.
    So this was a very common watch. Just a Ladies accessory watch.

    The first case I posted was Sterling, I'm not familiar with all of their case marks, but here are a few others that I have. I'm guessing that the GF part of the mark on yours indicated gold filled, but can't say for sure. Possibly Ten Karat Gold Filled as spelled out on the third example below?
