Has anyone seen a case with the signage "America" with flag flying above?
The case in question is 16 size with a typically 19th century fat pendant and crown (for a pendant-winding watch).

Is it really American or actually Swiss?

Hmmm. I didn't think of that. This is a case only. No movement; otherwise I could check that.

Similar to this? This one is an 18 size on a Model 83.

For workmanship, the case quality is good. The gold plating is only average. The cases were not marked with any warranty for wear. Probably a 5 or 10 year case.

Why not use the trade mark book for such things?
