Additional Information

New addition, recently purchased. So far, running beautifully. Stem feels a little loose and fave has one blue hour hand and a bent (downwards) black minute hand. I'm not sure if the movement is original to the case and if the band is original either. When I opened it up, the glass fell out! Inside the back cover, you can see it has been serviced many times. I'm not sure if it's original or a Frankenstein watch lol. It's still a pretty piece!

Hi Tessa,  You have a lovely little American Girl "C".  Smaller than a dime one ad says. Looks like a replacement band which is more common than finding the watch with the original band.  A sweet little watch.

That's it! I was guessing American Girl, after looking at others, but wasn't sure. You found it fast! So much fun. Wish I could buy more! Thank you so much!

You are very welcome!  Warning it is addictive lol Good news is the prices for vintage ladies watches are very reasonable so it makes it fun.  Here is one more ad I found.

Be careful Tessa......... Try to pace yourself, I know first hand. It's like trying to eat one potato chip.
