Hey all,

 

This watch belonged to my grandmother who has passed quite a few years ago, I had never thought twice of it until recently when our house caught fire and they had asked me about salvaging certain items. I would like to know what this is, what era its from and maybe just a little more about it. I cant provide any more photos or details as it is sitting in the restoration facility...I hope someone could help identify it.

Two movement symbols are marked one being the asterisk and an anchor? I also do not see a movement serial number.

 

 

 

I believe the watch to be a 1941 "Lorraine". It seems to have been customized showing the initials AM & HW. I picked this watch up for 5 dollars........they said it was broken, so I bought it and winded it and Im watching it tick away like new!

Hi all

I believe this little beauty is a 1939 Goddess of Time.  

the 17 jewel unadjusted 6AZ movement is marked with a cresent moon (1938) but the case serial number of 9130391 denotes it as a 1939 model. The case is 10k rolled gold plate and is marked Bulova inside and out. The bracelet is a Hadley and I think it may be the original with the watch. Both watch and bracelet are in excellent condition, and the movement is running well. It looks like this watch has been well cared for.

Hi all

this is another ladies watch l have picked up . It is in very good condition apart from needing a new crystal . It looks as though the owner to care of it as it has been serviced a few times over its life. the 17 jewel 6AH movement is running well and keeping time. It is marked with a triangle for 45 and the case serial number starts with a 5 again denotes the 1945 manufacture date. the case is 10K gold filled and has two diamonds in silver at each lug.  The crown is marked Bulova and the band is gold plated Spiedel stainless steel. Having looked through the ads I think this watch may be an "Ethel" from the details in the ad, but I will leave that decision up to the panel

regards George

The marks on the back of the case are not rust but seem tobe some sort of glue. maybe from a sticker of sorts need to use a solvent to remove them .

Case shape:

Additional Information: 

This is believed to be a 1945 Goddess of Time "K".

It was purchased originally from Louis J. Shapiro Jewelers in Chicago on December 15th, 1945.  The price of the watch, not including tax, was $33.75.

I acquired it with the original outer box, display box (whose owner was right handed due to the slight wear spot on the velvet covered lid), guarantee paper, payment terms, and bill of sale.  Both the bill of sale and the guarantee have the case back serial no. that matches this watch.

There are the roman numerals VII III II on the inside of the case outer which match the last three digits of the case serial number F382732.

When received, it had a black rope band with a Bretton clasp of which I do not know was original, but had the same amount of tarnish as the outer case.

The dial is original and does not show any wear or corrosion

It has a 6AH movement which was cleaned, oiled, and had a new mainspring installed.  The movement has a triangle symbol stamped on the set bridge.
