Additional Information

This is a Rocket.  It is in pretty nice shape especially the dial.  It is black with rose roman numerals, track and crown.  The hands are yellow gold.  The case is 14K rose gold filled with a 1943 serial #.  The movement is a working 7AM with a X date stamp for 1943 as well.  It came with the bracelet which has some wear but I really like how it sits on my wrist so I might leave it.

Thank you Geoff!  I had one but it is missing the crown and the dial was in rough shape.  This one is much nicer.  Ironically there were three listed at the same time.   This one had the nicest dial.

Nice snag!

I like the band. If it was mine, I'd leave it as is :o)

Mens or ladies watch?

Could be both.

Could be but I found an ad that said it was a ladies so I went with that.  I’m guessing it was a ladies sport watch.
