This Ladies watch has 6AF 15 Jewel Movement with the Shield also has the dust cover, Serial #122412. It's housed in a 14K Rolled Gold Plate Case, Serial #9083383. Case measures 28.45mmx16.75mm, with the lugs 30.85mm. Matching band has two Sapphires and is very intricate.

I believe it is in the Advert's last ad of 1929 but is hard to see.

I think it's called the "Madeline"

Here's the Madeline snippet from the 1929 ad linked in the root record.  Doesn't look like the horizontal bezels match.  Subject engraved, and I think the ad shows "steps" for lack of a better description.

Yes I see that now, and the band on subject watch doesn't match the advert. I believe the band is original to the subject watch as the engraving pattern matches on both.

Dennis  I think most of the similar/period ads we have where you can "see" the bracelets (or where the ad states "matching bracelet") suggest bracelets with "stones" came on watches with same or similar stones.  It's a nice period correct bracelet, and the engraving has similar motif - flowers, etc...- but I'm "guessing" it was not advertised as original to this watch.

Thanks everyone, I will keep checking the new advert's as they are listed. We are geting a lot of those from some very dedicated folks. I'm sure it will show up.
