Additional Information

I found this watch in my mom's jewlery. It may have been hers or my grandmoms

I took a guess at the year because ther are no letters under the serial number on the case back.

While the watch needs a good clean it runs and keeps time

I don't know anything about watches. I do think this one is delicate and cute...not very technical.

The band is leather. It says 14k gold on the back of the case.

I don't have the best camera but offer a picture or 2.

 There are 2 diamonds on the case.

Not For Sale

Thanks Scott

That bottom left picture sure looks like the watch.

I guess I should take it to a jewler and have it cleaned up.

Is there some way I could find out what its worth?

Thanks Again,

Hi susantr!  Your watch is a Her Excellency "U" like this one without seeing the movement date I would date your watch at 1948 by the case serial #.  I hope you are enjoying this lovely heirloom watch.
