Charles Gigandet S.A.Was a watch factory in Switzerland.
Wakmann was a U.S. importer and marketer of Gigandet, and also Breitling and others and provided their name on the watch or case. It was an easy way for the Swiss to get around U.S. tariffs on whole watches at that time.
You might have a Valjoux 72 or variant in there, but can't confirm that until someone looks at the movement.
