Additional Information

Hello,  This is Her Excellency "B" that is white gold filled.  Far less common to her sister watch, Her Excellency "A" that is yellow gold filled.  I have been keeping my eye out for one of these and one finally came up.  Ironically a nicer one came up after I purchased this one so I may get a second one.  It has a 10K white gold filled case, 21 jewel 6AK working movement.  I have a NOS cord band for it but I quite like the one that came on it.  This was probably a graduation gift as the young lady was 18 in 1947.  Will have a comparison shot with the Her Excellency "A".

LOL Geoff too many.  Just a few on my wishlist left.  Focusing on the ladies AA and Her Excellency lines but keeping my eye out for a ruby cocktail watch as well.  That one might take some time to find the right one.

Looks real nice! I agree, the white gold versions are sometimes harder to find.

Thanks Ken.  They really pushed the Her Excellency "A", it is the most advertised of all the Her Excellency line I think.  It is interesting to see how the popularity of different case colors goes in and out over the decades.  Yellow and pink gold seemed the most popular in the 40s.
