The LA mark looks like that of the City Watch Case Co Ltd (Louis Arnould) - see http://www.silvermakersmarks.co.uk/Makers/London-L.html
Yes I think you're right.

The repairers marks I've found on our old watches have all been within the case. It looks rather similar to a 1930s watch my grandmother had, that shape seemed popular, with a really thin sort of corded / rounded leather rather cocktail-like strap passed through the bits on the watch case itself....
Threlfall (Southport), Isherwood (lancs & Canada), Newbould + Topliss(Derby), Keating & Cummins (Ireland + lancs), Fisher, Strong& Casson (all Cumberland) & Downie & Bowie, Linlithgow area Scotland . Also interested in Leigh& Burrows,(Lancashire) Griffiths (Shropshire & lancs), Leaver (Lancs/Yorks) & Anderson(Cumberland and very elusive)
