The Felsa caliber 465 was introduced in circa 1950s. You will often see this movement rebranded under other  watch company names, but the “F” logo and caliber number can still be found. For example the movement pictured was found in a vintage Titus dress watch and signed Titus Watch Co.

In a post by a user on WUS:

“The Felsa 465 was a movement of the 50s and mounted into a lot of watches. The “quality version”, if I may say so, had a screw balance. With 11 1/2 lines it belonged to the larger movements those times, Another feature of the 465 was the long regulator arm.”

There is another variation of this movement known as the caliber 472. The primary difference is the addition of a calendar complication.
