similar watch 1
A nice Laurel and it is special for two reasons: the nice gold number dial that was introduced in 1928 and the fact that the watch is gold filled. Most Laurels for sale are from 1929 and later and are all rolled gold plate. Also the only ad we have is from 1929. So this watch confirms it was available (as from?) 1928 and in Gold filled. Nice catch. One of the many watches you beat me in the bidding lately Jabs last September 27th! Good we have it now on myBulova.
yes true that sometimes they beat each other in the auction, but in the end always end up on a myBulova :)
I guess I'm glad I decided not to pursue collecting ladies watches, I'll let you two slug it out. This is a beautiful watch, the engraving is wonderful.
Nice 1928 and filled! Laurel from me!
