What is the case gold content? With these watches it makes a difference in the model ID.

It is a 14K White Gold case.

Would agree. Close in shape but does look longer.

Mine has a 10AN 15 jewels and is 14K RGP. American Standard Case and has a flower at 3 and 9 position as well as at 1 and 11 and 5 and 7. First number of the case serial number is a 7 but the pat. is July 1924.

I will have to look through the 10AN movements to see which on came in this watch.

Unless... 974? Does not "curl" at the lug ends, is a little straighter but still looks as if it could be a bit too short.

 

 

...Or it could be one of these, although the res leaves a lot to be desired.  http://www.watchophilia.com/vintage-advertisements/a1918-1929/a1921-newspaper/
