Hi
This is a thrift shop find. I couldn't leave this lil peach behind. I won't be devastated to find that it's not rare and worth a mint but I would love to find out a little more about it. I've spent more time that I'd like to admit trying find out anything about the brand. The Manhattan Watch Company closed way before this was made (incabloc being made from 1934).
I assume it is American although I am in Australia.

Brand: Manhattan
Face seems to be metal with raised numbers
No second hand
17 jewel Swiss movement
Incabloc
10Kt gold plate on plated steel (reads 'gold plated G10 PS' the ps is in a circle)
The watchband looks original - 10kt G.F Top Ca_ _ spiedel USA 67
The back has 18 23 83 stamped on it
Inside is just a couple of jewellers service marks, 17 jewels and MD stamped on the movement itself
To set the time you pull out the pin

Any information would be most appreciated Thanks
