Thanks Tom, I agree, I’ve often wondered what their i.d. codes were based on. It would make sense, at least in my mind, that watchmakers/repairers would have had some sort of standardized meaning that could be read by other craftsmen.

It’s always kinda bugged me that you see an inscription that states the date, then you have five more in code, each different.
It seems that it was world wide, at least in Europe,, UK and the US.. Makes it pretty hard to trace the history and I love a mystery..

I’ll keep searching and post my findings, if any 🙄
