Additional Information: 

Here I took the risk when buying, I do not dare guess watches ID

case is similar model 158 from this era, but in 18k white gold, I guess by the serial number the year of manufacture to 1925

dial is being cut and not signed, the numbers are roman

movement is 9AA and is marked with number 13 placed in the trapezoid (I have already met with those markings several times, anyone know what it means)

What is the date mark below the detent screw, Jaroslav?

Lovely watch, great numerals. I would guess at new hands.

Thanks for the warning Bob, previously I did not notice date mark

it's a asterisk, correct date of 1924

Actually, I dare you to guess Jabs....as your guesses on your last 20 or so watch records have turned out to be solid model ID's based on the ads you post with your examples.  A "guess" is a good startign point for discussion.  :)

Well it is true that each obtained watch comparing with the database advert and watches that we are published.

In this case, I really found nothing. Waiting for help from more experienced members :)

I have found Lady Maxim ads as late as 1924, and that is what I believe the numbered watches are, ladies and mens. 

LM.

Agreed for now that this dial type was primarily used on the early Lady Maxims.
