Morning all, i have a 1925 Valjoux 13 trenchwatch watch that has been handed down to me a few years ago that i have been researching.
The porcelain facia has no makers name but i understand this was common for a company/sponsor to order the watch workings and add their own case or to assemble the workings with a case made by a different company as it was the usual practise back then due to import costs for silver.
The casing marks are Swiss silver 925 with rampant bear hallmarks and an Edinburgh/Glasgow assay mark.
The sponsors stamp or mark is a DS in cameo, however i cannot find a listing anywhere for who the DS sponsor is ?
It was originally on a Harrop/Britannic expandable strap but i have had the watch rebuilt and it is now on a period leather strap.
I am hoping that someone will know who is the DS sponsor fingers crossed !
