    In response to your post showing your Laco, I had to dig mine out. This one needed much work and parts when it came my way. I made an offer contingent on my being able to get the parts I needed. My supplier had what I needed. Movement by Durowe which was acquired by Laco, possibly in the late 1940s or early 1950s. Owing to the bitter feelings toward a Germany after WWII, many German products for export were marked FOREIGN, as is the case with dial and movement of this one. I like the watch, but especially the dial.

    Durowe was in the forefront of producing a battery powered watch. In the early 1960s, Timex wanted into the electric watch business, so they bought Durowe. I have included a picture of a battery movement marked Timex. But it is a Durowe movement, and superior to the Hamilton Electric of the era. 9CA823B5-6371-4B02-B581-5E77D0A4F893.jpeg
