    The watch looks French.

    The "FCP" is preceded by Tthe Cyrillic letter "F" which suggests that this is a Russian (or other East European) maker. I don't know what the "F" might be (maybe a variation of the letter for "G") but then "CP" would be "SR" in English.

    There is a 5-pointed star which could be a Russian symbol, and the chevron mark seems to be the Neuchatel chevron which would indicate that the casi is made of silver or gold.

    The date is probably early 19th century.

    Hi cheita,

    The movement looks as though it could have been made by Japy in France, (they're often signed under the dial), and I think Martin's dating is about right.

    Regards,

    Graham
