What a lovely watch and band.  If it is possible to get a close photo of the watch it would be helpful.  You can post it in the comments.

Need to narrow down the decde as it's a solid gold case coud be anything.

Knowing what date code is on the inside movement would help.

Thinking it's from the La Petite series. Didn't find anything in the 40s, 50s or 60s part ads.

I've come back three or four times to this one. I'm stumped for now.

I am not finding a match.  I think this was probably worth getting for that band!  The style says 60's to me but for now...

Thank you all for your time in reviewing this watch.  I've made the change of the band to my wife' 50 year old watch( engagement watch) and she is very pleased with the look.  Added a cable type band to the watch and now my granddaughters are very interested in who will get the watch in the future.  Very nice watch that I found when trying to find a replacement band.

his looks like a 1960 Diamond Express "S" based on this 1959 ad.
