I uploaded two pictures of the watch in question to Photobucket.com. The links are listed below. I don't know just how good the quality of the photos will be, but you should be able to see that the works are also labeled "Chauncey", "Adjusted 5 Positions", "17 Jewels" and the serial number 32892, which is pretty low considering.
nice, definitely swiss, just the "look" the geneva bar style of the plates, the way the dial feet are held with the cam action screws, Chauncey would have made a substantial order from a swiss factory and had his name engraved on the movement and printed on the dial.
but it a nice watch, 17jewels, overcoil hairspring with compensated bimetallic balance and fine adjustment regulator, the screwheads are good condition, not chewed up.
