Additional Information

I picked this up today at an antiques mall.   I believe it to be a 1941 Officer.   It has an 8AE movement with the asteric symbol.  It has a great brown dial with black printed roman numeral hour markers.  The case is 10KT yellow Gold Filled.  It has what appears to be the original knotted link bracelet but it is fairly chewed up.   It is missing the stem and crown.  Everything else looks like it is in order.

Case shape:

Additional Information

I am not sure how to open the watch to get to the movement, so I do not know the symbols or movement model of this watch. Was given to my grandpa in 1944. In the pictures the watch looks gold, but it is a silver color, but it has a strange gold tint in different points of light. (The info I had received earlier is wrong It was not 1926 like I had originally said. I found a picture of my grandpa the day he got the watch, and it is dated 1944.

 

The seconds-dial on the watch has no number on it. Serial number on the back of the watch is 2771896. There are some numbers scracthed onto the inside of the back cover, but there are some scuffs and I cannot read what they say. I cannot find a clear symbol on the movement as to date the year exactly, but I think I see a "T" shape like the one used in 1942, but it is hard to make out.
