Watch Description

I think this most closely resembles a 1949 Heather, although the only picture I've found is a drawn advertisement so far, and the connector of the band looks a little different in shape.  I also saw the same face on your site, but in a different case with a different band "Her Excellency K", so not sure if one or the other is the original, and one is a mix, or if that was done frequently when buying them? 10K rolled gold plate bezel.  Working.  Found among my 80 year old mother's jewelry, but most likely given to her by a previous owner (her mom or her mom's employer who was a doctor's wife.)

Very nice watch. thanks for sharing your heirloom with us. You are correct, your Mom's watch is a 

1949 Heather

On a replacement band that probably dates to the 1960's, which is more common than not. Bands wore out and were replaced.

Thank you so much for helping me solve the mystery of the mismatched band!
