Beautiful watch.  Looks like a Golden Goddess from 1955 but without the diamonds.  Unknown for now.

1950/51 Linebook shows the Anita also as an option. Again no diamond element in the lugs. I'm unsure if these are original or a custom add-on. I certainly couldn't find an exact match, but will keep looking.

Just to note that the Anita above is showing a reflection of the watch next to it as listed in the linebook. Watches were grouped in trays when the photos were taken. So we are seekng the side styling of the watch below reflecting in the side of the Anita. If you look at the top side of the watch you will see it is plain as per the subject watch and the later Golden Goddess.

Wow, I've not seen the Anita. That IS close ... I wish I knew more of the history of the watch, but it belonged to my late mother-in-law and she was not even the original owner. Thanks for your help!

I pondered this one on and off for a couple days, and I think you are right Stephen. My only close matches were also the same. It appears the difference between Anita and Golden Goddess "A" was the band. Based on the absence of the "coin band", I would be inclined to call this one, for now

I think 1951 Anita serves a a good match, noting the added diamonds
