I have a cartier style watch with these marks on the back; JP stylized to fit inside a horizontal diamond. 0.800 inside a rectangle and a peacock mark. The watch band is silver I shapes locked with rosewood cross shapes. The clatch is two triangles that meet to form a rectangle and a clasp locks over both of them. The silver marks on the clasp are 925 and F&M inside a softened horizontal diamond. Thanks for any ideas!

Your watch case is Swiss. The 800 stamp means that your case is of the 800 standard, or 80% percent silver. The "peacock mark" basically means the same thing, that the case is of the 800 standard. I actually think it is another type of fowl, but I don't know what exactly. JP would be the case maker. The movement may well be by someone else.

The 925 on your band means that it is of the sterling standard, or 92.5% silver. F&M would be the band maker, possibly also Swiss but not necessarily. I suspect that your band is newer than the watch itself.

I'm sure a watch specialist would be able to provide more information about the movement, which would be the prime consideration in valuing a watch.

Hope this helps!
