Additional Information

I have really liked this model ever since I saw an ad for the Annabelle and Coronet.  I would have been happy to pick up either but I was very pleased to find this Coronet.  A very pretty watch with the flower and diamond design.

It is 10k white gold filled with 10 diamonds, 5 on each lug area.  I was able to find a new crystal for it and NOS band that looks close to the original.  It has a 17 jewel movement that is running well.  Both the case and movement is date stamped L3.

Thank you, I bought this the two days before my mom passed.  It will remind of her now.  She used to ask me, "any new watches lately?", and I would send her a pic of my latest.  I think she would have liked this one : )
