I'll give you the basics and let you Google the rest.

That says "FE", for France Ebauche. "Ebauche" is the term for the basic movement of the watch. It's going to be a 233.xx, made by Cupillard. Given the machine-turning, the adjustable stud, and the Incabloc shock absorber, it looks like it's a 233.68, likely made in the 1970s. If it has a date function it's a 233.69.

Hope this helps.

Glen
