Additional Information: 

14k Solid Gold. Marked with the usual 1924 patent date. No case serial as far as I can see from photos (waiting to arrive). This is one of those with a double stamped movement. It has the omega and the T which is odd as one is 1930 and one is 1932, both are on the same part of movement so not switched parts. Will update photos etc when it arrives.

Interesting double date stamp that skips a year.

very much a 1930s watch. we have a couple of watches very close to this style in a 1930s advert, but I cannot find an exact match as yet. Great watch!

Unknown model at this stage.

'DIANA' and 'ORCHID' are close, no match found.

Nice one.

That's a dandy and I don't even like ladies watches.

Unknown for now.

I'm just wondering what happened to 1931 :)

What are the coloured stones? Blue (synthetic) sapphires and the top and bottom stones are green  emeralds? So two different colours? do I see that correctly?

I can't tell from the photo. I think the stones are all the same color and it may be camera angle.

My guess would be that those stones are genuine, not synthetic. 

Unknown for me, but a nice watch nonetheless. 5AP is from the Aurore-Villeret cal 9 ebauche, the same as the 5AE, 5P, 5PP and 5PPI.
