I thought this might be an American Girl at first, after looking through the ads and some research I believe this may be the Embraceable w/ 2 Diamonds.

I had to go forward to 1966 to find a Linebook listing for this yellow gold model.  In the 1966 Linebook BAWD0162-2 pg 19 this is showing as an American Girl "TT".  Interesting the white gold version is listed as the American Girl "T" in the 1963 Linebook.

Thank you, Jim.  I thought at first it was an American Girl but could not find any ads.  There was an Embraceable without an diamonds in the newspaper ads.  I just glad it received the correct name. 

Thank you very much for your help.

Linebooks have this as the American Girl "TT", 21 jewels with two diamonds and RGP.

I don't find the Embraceable name in the records; not sure about that one, but it does look similar w/o the diamonds.

WOW!!!This is great Ken, I could not find any ads for the American Girl, that looked like it.  There was an ad on the DB for an Embraceable without diamonds.

But it's settled now with it being in the line book.  Thank you very much for finding the correct name.

This is too funny.   My watch went from a maybe American Girl, to maybe an Embraceable with Diamonds, to American Girl TT, to the Miss America TT. At least we know the correct year.

Who said watch collecting can't be funny.......  : )

That was my mistake. I must have selected the wrong model name when updating the record. All fixed now.
