I was hoping that I could ask a couple of question on this forum regarding my VC watch. Model 4165, Steel case, made in 1944, calibre 453.
When searching the web on pictures on calibre 453 one can see that the marking on the movements is different to mine, my movement does not have markings like “Seventeen 17 jewels swiss”, What could be the reason for this?
There is also some signs of corrosion on the movement, is this something that should be restored/re-finished or could such a repair affect the value?
Does anyone know to what collection this model belongs to ?
Looking forward on reading your comments !
