Gender : Men's

Case Maker : Wadsworth
Case Material : 14k White Gold Filled
Case Serial : 5334212
Case Style no : Art Deco

Other info : Sold on eBay December 14, 2015, for $310. The bracelet doesn't seem like the best match to me, but all things considered, I'm willing to believe it's original. In any event, it's hard to imagine a better example of what this model must have looked like when brand new.
