Here's another old beauty that's getting some wrist time lately. 1934 Ambassador and I believe the band is original though it doesn't match the add. It's marked R/R 1/20 12k Gold filled, pat 1,786,943, Made In USA. Note the ad refers to both white and natural gold . Caseback stamped 10K Rolled Gold Plate.She's a 2 tone beauty that's going to be with me a very long time. I hope one day my Son will see the beauty in these old lovelies and I'll make them his. Enjoy all.
