If you could carefully remove the rear of the case & show a pic it would help. Typically takes a thin knife blade and the seam will have a gap in the area designed to be opened.

After that it should be easy to tell what you have. There are a score of similar watches and some have very nice Swiss movements. A variation on yours in that there is no second hand. Just the exclusion of a longer post & hand.
They can be very accurate time keepers.

Yes, that doesn't look very old. The plastic ring around the movement would not look out of place on a watch bought new today.

It set my thoughts off in a slightly different direction - Has anyone ever created a quartz/battery watch, wherein the movement *looks* mechanical, because of a load of "fake"/non-functional parts?

Yes, a modern watch. The company Evaco is still in business and you could contact them if you have any specific questons (www.evaco.ch).

Others may be able to tell you more from the movement.
