Looks like it might be a 1930 La Fayette Ya think?

Gold plated would explain the wear pattern to the case.

La Fayette for me. I like the original value of $60-$70. Talk about hicking up the price to make the sale price more enticing.

Mark - Is this watch two tone? The stripes from lug to lug appear yellow in a couple of the photos?

Geoff, I think that's the wear on the gold plate.
