Maybe even the Douglas "C" but that's a guess.  "A" variant is white gold, "B" is yellow.  Pink is mentioned as available in a couple ads, but no ad w/ watch in pink or designating a pink as "C"....

But not enough pictures or info on jewel count etc... to indicate how subject watch would be ID'ed as confirmed (three stars).   Currently it has no stars.  Is a no star rating interpreted as less confidence in a watch record model name than a one star unconfirmed rating?  ...or is this watch difficult to assign any stars based on lack of information?

I'd put up 2 stars until an ad comes up. It's a safe bet as the case and dial are right. I've had a few of these as well and called them Douglas without an extention letter.

I guess that would depend on the jewel count Fifth.  W/O that info, we could say "well that one picture sure looks like a Douglas.   two ticks from me.

I agree with Will, not enough info to confirm. Tentative, 2 ticks.

Model variant is "A" for red gold, "B" yellow gold, and I think red is your rose gold model.

It would be nice to have the jewel count still, geezer.
