Additional Information

Here is an interesting ladies watch, at first glance you might think it is a manual wind, but it is in fact a quartz. The case could easily accomodate a manual wind movement, and many early quartz watches from many established companies sourced quartz movements that were drop-in replacements for the mechanical ones, so the cases remained the same. 

Case is 14K yellow gold, as is the fine mesh bracelet, weighing in at just over 20 grams.

Additional Information

I bought this watch for next to nothing just because it had a nice seventies look about it, the only problem with it was the crystal was about as badly scratched as I’ve ever seen, this wasn’t improved when I clumsily dropped it and it smashed! Obviously I want to replace it if it’s possible but I’ve struggled to identify this watch, any ideas?
