Additional Information

A nice example of a 1930 Ladies watch with what appears to be the original bracelet. The movt serial number in the photos  do look odd, but under the loupe are much clearer. The light caught it in a strange way making it look like an odd font. 

The 6AF is an FHF 332,  15 jewels with Breguet overcoil.  Although it is difficult to see, I have included a picture of the back of the bracelet, stamped with:

Maxim Patent 661869

It retains its original dust cover, but needs a stem and crown, which I'll address during the overhaul. The hairspring is in excellent condition, and overall the movt appears undamaged.
