Kathryn Bonanno Patrizzi, Antiquorum consultant, had this to say about identifying real Verger Freres cases:

It is not always easy to discover a Verger’s identity. Usually, their maker’s mark will be on the inside of the case, as opposed to the retailer’s stamp, which is usually on the surface of the object. The mark to look out for is a lozenge-shaped stamp, with the initials “VF” inside; this will be the mark for the most prized Art Deco pieces. The early pieces will bear the early trademark, “FV”, for Ferdinand Verger (after 1872); “VF” for Verger Frères from 1911–1935; Georges Verger et fils from 1935-1945; and Verger et Co. from 1945-1979 (probably run by Georges’ two sons, Claude and Francois).

"Verger France", combined with the poor quality of this piece, lead me to suspect a period knock-off...something that Vacheron was constantly victimized by.

Hi, some months ago i bought a Vacheron & Constantin Verger Frères wristwatch unfortunatly lots by UPS !!!. It had the Verger Frères logo + VERGER FRANCE added by hand !!. Look : The movement was the same. Look : Now, about the case without a better photo it is dificult to validate its quality, but here is waht should be mine : Does help ?. Best regards. Patrice.

I'd love to see the quality of workmanship on that piece Patrice.  What I've seen of Verger Freres in catalogs has been amazing, especially the enamel work.  This auction item has simple painted decoration and lacks the Verger hallmark.
