Hi! Does anyone know where I can find a movement, dial and case back for the American Girl HH in white gold?

Thank you!!

Hi Leah -  The HH American Girl is yellow gold. The movement for the HH is 5AD, you can probably find one in an on-line auction site like eBay. The case back will be difficult, the best you could probably hope for is to find a donor watch as well.

Hello,

I have a dozen or so vintage ladies Bulovas I have yet to catalog. I'll look through and see if I can find something for you. I may also be able to find something through my local watch dealer. He literally has tubs of watches in his shop.

Thank you so much for checking! The watch was a gift from my grandfather, and I'd really love to be able to put it back together :)

A previous commenter mentioned that the American Girl HH was only in yellow gold, but I thought I saw a white gold option mentioned in an ad from the period. Here's a photo in case it's helpful.

Hello,

Looks like the closest I have on hand is an M2 5AD, 21 Jewel. In a casing similar to a Miss America. Haven't found another one quite like it on here. I'm not sure if the movement could be used.
