1943 5AB 17J Possible Cleoparta?

Anybody have an idea on this watch? Looks like a "Cleopatra" which Ad says is designed like a picture frame but photo on ad is hard to see. Nice looking ladies watch! 17J 5AB with an X date code on movement. with 10k RGP case and original strap - all in excellent condition. One small scratch on original dial. I added NOS 5AB BM10 hands to make it easier to see the time on this small watch....but I have NOS 5AB GM10 ones too if it needs to be exact!

That's a great looking case. Nice if we can confirm the ID.

Stephen,

 

Everythings for Sale at the right price. I'd need to get $100 for it. I also edited the info...its a 5AB not BA and its an X not a circle, so 1943.
