a VC lady's movement from the 30ies

 Hi fellows,

A little while ago: I decided to buy a VC lady's movement from the 30ies.

What I found interesting was the double signature: V&C, Hermès but also the Art Déco look. I suppose it is a JLC ébauche: I was hoping a cal 101 but I suppose it is too big.

Would you have any clues, do not hesitate to provide some informations !

I don't know what I will do with it : one ofmy project would be to  find an old Reverso gold box and try to integrate in it with the help of a good watchmaker.

Cheers,

Berny

I am wondering wether it is from the 30ies or 60ies after seeing such a comparable dial at Antoine de Macédo ? Courtesy: Antoine de Macédo.
that's definitely 60s

You can see the same features showing in this back layout: I think 1201 is a unique Hermes case number, like Verger Freres did.  Why don't you pop the movement out for a good look?
