    T Eaton was a department store in Canada. Thats a nice watch you have, guessing from around 1930,s. Looks like a Gallet movement in it.

    Looks to be cased in Canada and has a Swiss movement.

    These Eaton movements were made by Gallet in both 16 and 18 size and in a wide range of jewel counts and strongly resemble 16 and 18 size Waltham plate layouts. The Interocean grade was 23 jewels only, was the top of the Eaton Gallet line and made in both 16 and 18 size. The name "Interocean" was engraved on the plates.
    Below is an example of the 18 size Interocean.
