She looks to be about 15-17 years after the AA series JP.... though nice ribbed dial and I can see where you're going with that.

karmelwiar  I'm confused on the square entry for the movement date symbol.  Do you have a pic of the movement? Please and thanks.

karmelwiar, can you provide crystal measurments in mm. If you can get it to the tenth that would be great. I've found a crystal in one of my catalogs that appears to be the correct shape and is close to your 1/2x3/8 measurement. It is listed as being for the First Lady G & H. Thanks.

EDIT - Also, is there any way that you can open it and let us know what is stamped on the inside of the back? As always, pics would be great.

I will try and answer your questions as soon as I can. I really appreciate your input. My biggest problem is I'm leaving on a trip soon and won't return till January 20. And my eyes are not so good. I will have to have someone help me with looking at the engraving inside. My daughter-in-law helped me with the info I have.I will also take pictures of the movement as soon as I return.

Thanks again.

Perhaps you meant "First Lady G"?,  that would be my read......if I could just see the lugs to confirm.

I think thats it...the First Lady "G", faceted crystal, available in Yellow or White. The ad scan is not showing a ribbed dial, but most of these scans are of low quality so it might be there, we just can't see it. What is showing of the top lug looks like a match, but it would be nice to see the whole thing for a confirmation.
