Additional Information

This appears to be a 1946 Knickerbocker.   It is a 10KT Yellow Gold Plate with a 8AH movement.  The date code is 46 and also 13.  Not sure about that.  It has a cream dial with yellow gold applied hour markers.  Just finished servicing it and added a new leather strap.  I will be on the look out for the orignal mesh bracelet.

Based on the thread I am going to go with Knickerbocker.  This one isn't cut and dry for sure.

I'm going to say probably Knickerbocker, according to the previous discussion.
