Looks similar to 1925/26 Princine, 1926 Ramona, and 1927 Suzanne, but case shape is a little different. I have it running now, but misplaced the crystal. Band is Gold Filled with blue stones. Case is solid 14K White Gold. Movement has the blus stone winding crown. Any ideas as to Year and Name ?? Original dial, just cleaned.

Looks like the VELSA in this 1924 ad, KEN.

Do you have a movement date mark?

In reply to by FifthAvenueRes…

The Ad picture is similar, but and the 1,2,3,4,5 bottoms touch the center and the tops of 7,8,9,10,11 touch the center. On my watch the numbers are all verticle. The case looks to be exact.

Dial is of the earlier type and the case is slightly different. Maybe a similar model but at this stage we do not have an advert confirming. A model name may have been asigned to the later versions which the subject watch is.

Ahh, now your showing a better advert that matches the subject watch :-)

Tentative 6724.

Kunapets any chance of a photo of the movement. I believe 6P should have a date stamp on it and be post 1923.

Agree with pre-1924 6724, dial match better and date.

Note, this watch may have been given a model name in 1924/25.
