Additional Information

This is an interesting little watch from the First Lady line.  I like my "AB" so much I thought it would be nice to get an example of this one.  It is a little worn and the dial has some marks but nice to see it in person.  I would really love to find the sister to the "AB", the "AC" in aquamarine.

This one, the "AD" has a permanently attached mess bracelet band, 8 real tiger eye, and 6 synthetic diamonds.  Both the case and movement are dated N3.  The movement started ticking away when I opened the case.  1973 linebook 183

Thank you KodachromeCrawford! I don't usually collect past the 50s but this line is hard to pass up.
