That’s nice. A Greek letter brand I haven’t heard of. I like the elephant on the caseback.

ANCRE refers to a lever escapement, right? Not what we would call an anchor in English, which is more of a vertical clock escapement?

"County prison Rijeka 1972"

Rijeka is one of 4 largest cities in Croatia, located at seaside on West Adriatic.

I presume it was gift for retirement of prison guard. I presume...
