Terrasse watch Co. founded in 1881 by brothers Bernard and Gustave Jacot?

It has the key... is sterling cased and has a simple movement and key...

Any thoughts?

The hands are way cool!











Thanks Guys!

Hi Greg,

It's Swiss. The movement looks to be fairly nice quality, with a lever escapement and 18 jewels.

The engine turning on the case is killer-but then I'm a sucker for engine turning. The other case engravings look to be really crisp, too. I'm guessing that this one wasn't carried much. The case is silver, but is .875(as indicated by the mark) and not sterling(.925). This is a fairly common purity on Swiss cases.

Any chance you could post a close-up photo of the balance wheel and escapement?

Thanks Ben...

I snapped a few close-ups:
