Hi All -

This came with a watch I bought on the "Bay. I've never seen this mark, and on top of that, it is Serial #1.

Here's a pic of the stamp. The case is an otherwise very plain OF case.

Any info is appreciated.

It says

"SILVERINA"

A.C.W.C.Co.

I'm guessing American Clock and Watch Case Company

Any chance this is a Swiss Fake ?

I know they liked to us a play on regular names that sounded right but were not an exact copy.

Could this be a play on A.W.C. Co by adding another letter ?

Just a thought.
