Gold Caseback stamped 10K Gold Filled.

Lugs swivel at the Bezel.

21 Jewels and the Dial is showing 'AA' characteristics, but in '54? ...time will tell.

Looks very similar to the Warwick.  Ad date tentative 1954 or 1955.

Agree with Warwick. Identical dial, barrel curved crystal. Very nice case, like the swivel lugs.

Grazzie mile Scholars!

the 'WARWICK' it is.

Will,

based on knowledge accumulated IMO the ad will most likely be 1955.
