Additional Information

Purchased this one yesterday out of a junk box....for 50 cents. Wound it and it started running and keeps time. It doesn't appear to have seen much wrist time. 10K gold plate with a 2 tone face sporting Roman numerals. Engraving on vertical sides of crystal.Band is yellow gold replacement as received. I suspect it needs a cord band.

Movement is double stamped with a circle and triangle.

My best guess based on case and jewel count is a 1945 Goddess Of Time

It's a nice package, dial and the case design compliment nicely

Just to confuse things I am throwing in these 1943 ads with the names reversed showing this model as a Goddess.  Now I don't know what to think.

Same here, Doris for now. I suspect some of the engraved G.O.T. models were spun off and given their own names in the early WWII years, perhaps face is an indication.   Here is another first thought to be a GOT with Roman numeral face and an ad dated 1946 calling it a Sonia.
