Ah, a sailor. Or a strange looking sea creature…

Nice to see the original strap and box. A fixoflex 😬

The spacer (or whatever it is called) is a strange looking creature too. Not sure how it should secure the movement but right now the movement can move up and down in the case.

And there is a makers mark between the lugs. And to the left probably something like gold filled.

Yes, next to the Swiss border as many of the French watch makers outside of Paris...

For the non french speaking like myself "Coeur d'Or" means "Heart of Gold", so it is a wisely chosen logo. THe company was founded in 1959 and still exists, now part of the Swiss Oerlikon group. They are providing mainly gold plated metal parts to the apparel industry, for example to Louis Vuitton, nowadays.
