This watch is awesome and has had a full service and is keeping excellent time. I belive it may be a squadron but not sure, Has the rose or copper face with blue steel hands. Really is a beauty!!! Just the bracelet alone is on the fleabay for a buy it now of  274.95 But as we all know its only worth what someone is willing to pay right! 16mm   Kreisler USA Rose Gold-Filled Mesh 50s Vintage Watch Band . So i guess bracelet is period for this watch although i doubt was original to the watch.
