Wow! What a find. Is that case stamped 14K on the inside?

Hi Andrew, your watch resemble the shape model 154, but the engraving case is different, as well as the movement has 17 jewels instead of 15, 10AA movements have appeared in the years 1924 and 1925, by signs the case and movement, I guessed on the year of manufacture 1925, nice piece of history

Unknown for now

Jabs, I noticed you said 17 Jewels, but mine indicates 16 on the movement (if I'm saying this correctly.)

Is there a datemark on the movement, as I can't see one.

Beautiful watch with original grosgrain band and fastener, very rare.

I've checked multiple times now under a magnifying glass but don't see anything. If they do exist where are the dates usually located?

I think I'm correct in saying date codes began in 1924. I see a serial number on this movement. Did they have serial numbers and date codes on the early movements?
