I originally created this thread for help on the origins of my watch:
And then posted this for further information, where I was told I need partial disassembly on the movement to acquire it's number:
I have now taken it to the previously mentioned watch maker again and he explained he would not be prepared to take it apart due to how delicate the movement is, so suggested it was sent to VC in London.
VC in London have now echoed the words of my local watchmaker and have gone on to say they doubt anyone outside of Switzerland would want to take apart this movement. It is now being sent directly to VC in Switzerland, so it seems this will kill 2 birds with one stone as they're also the very people likely to tell me it's origins!
Hopefully, I will shortly know everything about this watch, so I thank you very much for your help, CherryAnne.
(I will happily post the history of the watch once I get the details back should anyone be interested.)
