Additional Information: 

This is a lovely lady's watch which my wife (also a lovely lady) found at Goodwill.  To visual inspection, it's in good condition both outside and inside, but it's not running.  I intend to repair it.  The date stamp is N0, suggesting manufacture year 1970.  The movement is marked 17 jewels, 5 BD.  On Dr. Ranfft's archive of movements, that model is listed as 21 jewels, not 17.  I don't find this one in the advertisements of 1970-1973.  What do you think, gents?

Are these pics from a live auction Mark?
If so, against site rules.

Well that sure looks like the watch. Is it from a auction listing, or??? Not an ad, but it's a start.  Since we have crystal specs, I'll look through the various crystal resources we now have too.

Sorry admin, I looked at the rules and regs and it said no discussing or listing active ebay items, I must have misunderstood.

Doc's picture is of a 5BD, showing the 23 jewel configuration. It must have come as either or.

OK   Goddess of Time based on some pictures of the subject watch in a named box.....but only two ticks.  It's a good starting point.

note the integral bracelet description within the text of the Goddess of Time Collection ad. The reference Watch found in the Goddess of Time hallmarked box shows the same and is a safe bet on a tentative ID.
