Movement Serial No.:
Case Serial No.:
After doing some digging on this one I thought I would get it added. This one has two model names Victoria and Claire. Victoria came with a cord band and Claire came with an expansion bracelet. In doing my research for this watch I found Victoria ads starting in 1944 and going through 1947. I did not find any Victoria ads after 1947. Claire ads start in December of 1946 and goes to at least 1949. My thought is that 1947 was the transition year. Seems like there were several different dials. The 1944 ads have a roman numeral dial. The first ad showing this dial that I could find was 1945 so I will post that ad.
The case is 14K pink gold filled with a 1943 serial #. The working 5AB 17 jewel movement is date stamped 1944. I have installed a NOS cord band. This watch was graciously gifted to me by another member as part of a trade. It was a nice little surprise that I am really thrilled to have.
