Hi all

Just received this one through the post today

I believe its a 1950 Webster  the movement is marked L0 along with the case.  It is  10 k Rolled Gold plate. and looking at the case and bracelet there are no wear marks at all . The bracelet looks original The crystal is glass again no scratches. The only thing that lets the watch down is the dial which has wear marks around the outside and they can just be seen when movement is in the case.

probably a job for International Dial I think.

Ahhh... the "Sea Shell" watch.  This watch was always such a looker and quite hard to find not beat up.

This is the nicest one I've seen and looks to be sporting the actual original bracelet as seen in the ad.

The "Westover" aka Sea Shell watch is looking pretty darned snazzy here gents.

I believe we have a Tentative "Westover" based on a jewellers hang tag on another members watch some time ago. Jay posted a pick with the hang tag on page 2 of this thread.

Additional Information

The movement is spotless 8AC 17j with LO=1950 date symbol. The case has a L1 date stamp. The watch is keeping quartz-like time. The condition indicates the watch has not been around the block too many times, maybe went to church once or twice. Probably lived in the dark for close to 60 years.
