Took to repair shop and women said, it has been kept in great shape for as old as it is.
the story my mother told me was when I was 3 she was trying to get my four brothers and baby sister and myself in the car and I broke away because I needed to pick up this shiny object. It turned out to be this watch. She tried to find the owner but nothing ever came of it. I am glad I was able to give her something beautiful to wear once in awhile, since we were pretty poor throughout my growing up, but we were blessed to have each other, and funny thing, didn’t know we were poor.
I am sure she wore it at some time, because it has a new band on it, the old one she said was black and broken. Mom kept it all these years and I received it after she passed away. It has been in my jewelry box since I have my Bulova my husband bought for me in 1989 that I wear all the time.
