Hi folks,

I'm hoping someone here might recognise this movement and be able to tell me whose it is. The only 'S.S. & Co' I'm familiar with is Stauffer, but this logo of the large letters within a horseshoe shape isn't one I recognise at all, and I can't find it detailed in any trademark indexes. The movement name is a bit odd too; peercee !! Again I can't find this registered as a trademark.

The watch itself is a 1935 silver tank shaped wristwatch. A very nice piece but I would like to know whose it is!

Thanks!!

I suspect that it is Stauffer, Son & Co

Based on the fact that they made watches named Peerless and also Peertone, so Peercee fits the pattern.

It is more than likely marked under the dial-side. Looks AS.
Hi, new to this but...shcuaffer and son co. We're a Swiss maker but opened an office in London. They imported high grade movements I.e. IWC, Fontainemelon and Eterna. The IWC movements were marked with 3 triangle and the other 2 with Peercee. I'm pretty sure what you've got there is a Fontainemelon who made lovely movements before being swalled up by ETA.

Hi he'sawrongun, and welcome to the forum,
...shcuaffer and son co. We're a Swiss maker but opened an office in London.
There's more information on the various Stauffer companies here on David Boettcher's website. You've picked up on a 13-year old thread here, but it's worth resurrecting.

Mikrolisk shows the Peercee name as registered to Stauffer, Son & Co. in 1936.

Regards,

Graham

Oops. As I said, I'm new to this.

Please don't worry about it, the subject is interesting and probably new to many people here, so keep on posting!

Graham
