Yes, I would say this is the Magnolia. Nice watch, very nice watch.

1933?

jabs,

Double check the first digit of the Case seriel number ( I'd suspect a mis stamped 8 or 6) as the Watch appears 1920's.

Should be a 9 for 1929. Advert above is 1927.

Magnolia for me.

I corrected the date of manufacture on the 1929, probably the first digit careless stamped 9

A missed stamped first number is a common occurance which has always made me think that this number was applied later by hand, when the watch was finally assembled.

This movement is a rare bird!

Nice. An oldie and getting very scarce. 

The 7AT is a Felsa 171, as is the 7T.

I was wondering who picked up this one.

I was pretty sure that it would be a Ladies model because of the smaller 7AT movement.

One of the few Ladies models with the sub second hand.
