Additional Information

I am looking to collect most of the Her Excellency models from the 40s.  Not every variant/color but I would like to get one example in each style.  So here is the one I picked up for this model in white gold which I believe is Her Excellency "V".  It is 14K white gold with 6 diamonds.  Three on the top and three on the bottom.  It has a 21 jewel 6BA movement that was listed as not working but I was pleased to find it is indeed working and started right up.  Looks like the minute hand has been replaced.  Fitted with a NOS cord band like it would have had originally.

Thank you jabs.  I almost bought the "T" instead of the "U" so I could use this ad for both lol but I like the white gold dial a bit more.

1948 Her Excellency 'V' indeed. I'd agree the minute hand has been replaced, but still a lovely piece.
