Additional Information

Can't seem to find any watches like it in the database. Not in great shape and needs some serious TLC, but a charming little hand wind watch with no second hand running on an 11ALL 17 jewel movement. Gold electroplated round case measures at about 32mm w/o crown. Sunburst dial with lume on the inner side of the indices. Overall, interesting little find, and I look forward to hopefully finding out what model it is.

Great looking watch.  Found a match in the 1971 Line Book BAWD0179 page 25 of 70.   The only difference is the missing whale on the dial.  I believe your dial is silver but it is hard to tell from the photo.

To me, the dial on mine looks to be a very light gold/champagne color, but the one in the ad certainly looks like it (minus the whale).

That looks like a match to me.
