My name isCustomerand I would love to help.
Please use the Add Files feature to add pictures of the watch, dial, inner case and the movement.
The serial number on a watch is on the movement (guts) and not on the case.

If you are not able to add photos, then I need to know if the watch is an open face or a hunter case (a gold cover over the dial)

size of the watch and the serial number written on the movement. Thanks!
