Additional Information

I believe this is Christine.  This seems to have been a very popular model and is seen in ads for about a decade.  It is a bit smaller than some of the other watches I have from this era.  Nice domed crystal.  This one is pink 14KGF over sterling.  These movements are so small!  Thanks.

This ad is a little later from 1948 but the only one showing the pink I could find.

By the look of it, you're having as much fun creating the photo essay as you are collecting the watches. It's difficult to capture these tiny watches in their glory, keep up the great work.

Thank you Geoff!  Yes I am having fun with it.  Glare and color shifts do make it difficult to really show the beauty of these little treasures.
