Just got The Empress back from the jewelers! I was going to replace all four saphires, but that would have been incredibly expensive. The jeweler recommended that we fill the spots with enamel and it turned out beautifully! (And about $140 cheaper :) )

Movement serial number and date symbol on the movement?

I can't find a movement serial number, and the date symbol looks like a shield but the directory on this site said 1926, not 1929 as the shield would indicate.

This model was used over a few years. Can you post a picture of the movement please?

Sorry the picture is not great, I only have a camera on my phone.  I can't get a close up of what I think is the date symbol.

1929 would be correct IMO.
