Wonderful.

Rosie,

Can You get a little clearer shot of the inner Caseback and movement?

Is the back a snap fit or hinged?

The Case seriel number entered suggests 1930, but the Watch could be earlier.

Thank you for the reply, I updated the photos within the restrictions as to size.  It is a hinged case and the movement came out easily.  All went well until I pulled the pin out!  Gotta leave stuff to the professionals I guess.

Sq on the movement(?)

Rosie,

Can You verify the Case Seriel number, could the first numeral be a mis-stamped 6 ?

I have updated the site.  With the loop I saw TWO 2 APU or it could be APJ, and the inside of the case number, maybe, has two zeros at the start.  I could not find a movement symbol.  45450W scratched inside case, NLZO2E also scratched inside, 93048 also, probably  a date of  a service.

Thanks,

Rosie

Looks like a 6 AP movement to me

Thank you, the letters are REALLY hard to read even with a loop.

Thanks, my eyes can't see anything else to help find out.

Two 1925 Priscilla ads from 1925 too blury to see case details.
