Picked this up for my dad for his birthday next week. Problem is, I can't find any pictures that correspond to this watch. I've scrolled through thousands of pictures over the last few days but to no avail. Anyone recognize the face? Supposed to be 1930's model. Watch won't get here until the day of his birthday and I'd like to have it identified before I give it to him.

Thanks!

Thank you! Found a similar model finally but of course they had no information on it, other than possibly a 1940 date of manufacture. A large part of my concern was the cursive L above the 14k as most either had an extended W or 14k Gold, but the women's watch I saw that was similar had the same stamp on the back. The only difference is the one I saw were the size and it has a sub second where the 6 is in mine. Once it comes in I will post the information. Thanks!

All that cursive "L" means is that the watch case was made by LeMieux Watch Case Co of New York City who specialized in fine gold and gold filled cases. Records indicate that LeMieux didn't start producing cases until the mid 1940s. Waltham, like many other watch manufacturers of that period, would use cases from different companies.
