Additional Information

 From what I have gathered, this is a 1955 Ardsley... though I am not 100% sure of the model or style.  I have not opened it to verify any jewels, movement or other details as I am new to this and refrain from possibly damaging the mechanics.  I am looking for input as to the value of this piece for inssurance reasons.

Additional Information

Unknown 1931 Lady Bulova.  She sports nice little green emeralds in the bezel.  I'm thinking this must have been one of the last ladies watches to be decked out in the colored stones as everything starts to go to a solid case after her.

 Well, I think it's a Brunswick, it has round markers.  Franklins have square ones.  Bulovas can be so confusing.  I'm not sure if the expandable bracelet is original. The crown is original.

Four Way Angled Crystal. Unsure on the ID on this now which was given to me by someone else. It takes the same crystal as the Treasurer but the real treasurer is the same year with an engraved case.
