A super interesting Baroness Jabs. We only have ads from 1926 to 1929 of this model but your watch stretches the period this watch was available to 1931. If have seen several 6AF's with 7 jewels for 1931. Maybe a result of the economic crisis to reduce cost. Above ad is from 1927, so all movements were still 15 jewels.
