Glad you like it Geoff. There are 18 Goddess of Time in the database and I'm sure this is one of them! I guess someone agrees because I'm still holding on to 3 stars. I couldn't believe it when the wife showed it to me last night. I been collecting for over a year now and she just shows it to me now? Jeeze! Can't wait to get it running again and get some shots of the movement. The engraving almost looks like tiny diamonds. Amazing!

In an effort to obtain a 3 star rating for this watch I'm posting another ad for this watch. Instead of the 2-1/2 stars I have now. This is an ad from 1949. My watch is 14k rgp and the ad's description is 10k. Mine is a 47 and the ad is from 49. That's the only difference I can see. The bad part is that I am the the one who submitted this ad and didn't see this before!.... Doh! What do ya think fella's? The watch is 3rd top left.

boy these ladies are fun ain't they.  Most/all Rose Gold I have are 14k RGP,  so when I see comes red, I assume it's a gonna be 14kRose regardless of 10k for white/yellow gold.  Have others seen this?  Does look closer to second in ad just above....but at least it's not ID'ed as a variant and also not exactly matching ad.  Gotta be a Goddess of Time?

Great photos and history.  Is this the Red X 1949 Spiegel ad from above:

and the snippet from the 1947 ad in the "additional information" field in root of record.

Second 1947 Ad earlier in post:  Note Stainless Back in description:

Subject watch looks like a yellow gold bracelet on a rose gold case.
