Additional Information: 

Unsure of year or model - have been unable to exactly match style of numerals to suspected models on this site. Looks like Her Excellency, but the style of numbers on the face is of a late-Deco.

Any clues? I've just bought this, it's en route, so I can't look at it any closer until arrival :)

Just a guess for this watch that my wife recently inherited from a grandmother. After looking at the collected advertisements, I believe it is a "Her excellency" based on cushion shape, perhaps "T", "U" or something else. Not sure about year. Distinguishing features are the two diamonds and 14K white gold case. Speidel wristband appears not to be original. Had it cleaned at a watchstore. Crown and dial are original.

Thanks for any expertise shared. I am a watch novice.

I have little information on this watch outside that it may be 1920's. I have found nothing equivalent in the database or through Google searches. I want to determine restoration concerns before I start. I have not opened the watch and probably will not until I hopefully can learn more.

There is text on the inside of the clasp that I can only read as Breton Gold Filled top Pat Pen.

Hi All,

I just started to collect watches about a week ago, but have some good luck in finding them, Mostly from garage sales, flea markets, etc.. this came from a flea today in working order. I really like her and is almost exact one "M" on 1949 advertising page on this sight.

Thank you for your time,

Terry                                                                                                                                            8-13-11

Runs about 4 minutes fast per day, needs cleaning and a new crystal.  Unable to find "Excellency" model name or "6BC" movement in data base, but not confident enough in my knowledge to make changes.  "LO" on case indicates 1950, but "A9" on movement indicates 1949.
