    Moving this swiss watch to the European section for
    better identification.

    That is a Recta (Vauclay), 17 ligne and will be either Calibre "KA" or "KB"

    Thanks Bila but is there someway of leaving a search somewhere in case one of these A over I watch's ever shows up? The Recta (Vauclay) information did not find anything like this one. Thank you.

    Have you tried the Forum Search Feature, the magnifying glass in the top right hand corner
    Recta brings up 25 posts

    Thank you Lee but these all have a name on them as Recta. What identifies my watch as being a Recta?

    The "AI" could be just the signature for the retailer that ordered it, being in a Canadian Case I would be looking for an old retailer from Canada as a long shot with those initials or who used that signature:)
