I just found that one and was about to post it. You guys are GOOD!!!

Anita was the top-of-the-line ladies' model for that period, it seems. $195 was a boat load for a cocktail party trinket!

Over $2000.00 in today's money and at the time, more expensive than a Rolex. 

Anita for me as well.

Twenty-plus years later the initial price of this 1947 Anita was still more costly than a steel Omega Speedmaster. I did some research years ago on a rare 18k Speedy and I published this info:

"...In 1970 the suggested retail price of the 18k Speedmaster offered to the public was 3,917 Swiss francs (approx. $1,340 at the time, compared with $185 for the standard steel model). ."
