Additional Information: 

Nice rose gold cased watch with a tri-colored dial.  Roman numerals on the copper colored dial are a bit faded but still readable.

A bit more unusual for the time is a square watch with the rounded hidden lugs.  I've looked but I can't find this watch, though I think I may have seen a similar ad someplace?

Dainty looking, looks like the movement takes up the whole caseback.

Seems to me someone posted this style awhile back, but I can't seem to find it in the known or unknown's.

Must have been in the forms section. Looks like Gloria thought it was the right size...

Yeah the size doesn't really lead me to think Ladies... but it was perfect for her!  Though... I suppose it could be about the same size as the American Nurse of the same era? I'll have to put them side by side and see the difference.

Makes me think men's though.  I don't see any ladies watches with two-tone during this era.

I'd go with a mens model. Can't find it it any of the new ads I have. I just received a bunch of ads from Mexico (late 1940s') will add to the site shortly.

Looks very similar to the Conrad. Just sayin!

Jerin,

Is the crystal 18mm x 18mm  or is it rectangluar?

It's rectangular I think... it came out pretty easily but doesn't fit atol if placed wrong way.
