This is a very pretty watch with a dog watching a duck. The face and the crystal are in excellent condition for the age. It has the original box that goes with it. It is 17 Jewel and Swiss Made. It also says shock protected on the front. I was scared to take the back cover off as i didn't know whether it was a screw off or a snap off back. The watch is in such good shape it look as if it came straight from the jewelry store. The only thing wrong with this watch is it has been over wound. It's just stuck and probably a easy solution for someone who knows something about watches. From the research I have done this watch comes from the 1940's era, Just a really nice watch with the original fob also. I'm pretty sure this watch is silver from what I read about his watches.
